About Your Skin

Rating: 4.5

What is it about your skin?
I touch you and it is as natural as breathing,
As right as being
That I don’t even have to think about it.
It’s not about conscious or subconscious:
Just about us.

Wonder whether Adam knew Eve
With such insouciant tenderness:
Love in a unique completeness;
Whether what we feel has ever been felt
By anyone in this life, anywhere, anywhen.
Like being deep in a natural forest
Wondering whether anyone has ever set their foot
Beneath my soles,
If he or she had ever wondered whether
Anyone would ever follow in their footsteps: -
A virgin moment:
Unbroken snow
Stretching to History’s horizon
In all directions;
A whole world:
Our world;
Populated only by the desires of our hearts
And our limitless imaginations
Of the infinite possibilities
Of you
And me.

A whole world.
Our world.
My world.
Your skin.

Sigh... this is so tender, I'll bet your lady was aglow with happiness after she read this. The love very obviously glows from every word sewn together here. HG: -) xx
