Nothing much

Your eyes keep outlining

the shape of your desires

Transposed on to my body

Watching you watching me 

No secret, im left exposed 

Vulnerabilities exploited

with a mere flicker of the eye 

Primed eyes locked 

Its the moment 

Flight or fight 

Tactics 

Zeroed in on my waist,

a triangulation of anticipated pleasures

Eyes drawn up the signal fire is lit

a flourish of your jacket like a bullfight 

Swaggering towards me

arm raised in another flicker

the resounding crack of a slap breaking

broke the air 

Fear panic and dread.

frozen. 

And yet,  the kiss left

was soft warm and gentle 

Weaving the shape of a homely warmth 

that as soon you broke away

left a chasm so cold

i was driven to clamour for it

Only for a moment though, 

You know what a stubborn bitch i am.

Admitting it was never an option.

Even with my breath in your mouth.

Still when asked what i felt 

You know my reply.

I don't get this part. What was the slap? And why dread? I got lost there. Please elucidate. Yrpoempalslc I'm jealous too, bye the bye. All kisses should be like that! :D

You know when you want

You know when you want somrthreal bad but youre not supposed to have it and you go too far to hide it and you offend someone who is easily bigger and stronger they can easily overtake you and the anger that should have been expresed was switched unexpectedly to warmth  it is the age old story of playing/being hard to get or an impossible mismatched love where denial and determination do battlem she slaps him because she knows whats coming he kisses ger because he knows it is inevitable what seems as lust is really much more thus the reader can go over the idea as tgey wish adding their own theories. :)  hugss
