Somehow - Poem by Shelly Price

We lay silent together, relaxed and ever so content...
breathing in and out the essence of each others air.
Our bodies tangled, twisted and molded together as one...
while your hand ever so gently runs through my hair.

Not a single word has been spoken between us...
none adequate enough to begin to say what we feel.
We bathe in the after glow of what was our passion...
naked and exposed to what we both know is real.

We linger in the intoxication of the moment...
drunk from the perfection of our bodies in motion.
The hunger within us finally fed and satisfied...
we now ride on wave after wave of raw emotion.

Ever-so-slowly-but-surely reality peeks in...
threatening to take us back to the here and now.
We hesitate to go where we know we have to hide...
the love we're supposed to try to forget...somehow.
