The sound of the tall, old wooden grandfather clock disturbs the silence in the room as our bodies sit united as one.
Within your legs, I sat perfectly still
In love with you
In love with the moment
My head ceased up against the amplitude of your chest.
As my nostril breathed in the masculine redolence of your flesh.
My head curls tighter into your chest, allowing my ears to capture the slow-soft beats of your heart
Time seems to pass without urgency as our bodies enfold together
My thoughts seem to be here
Then over there
Now it is nowhere as my mind takes time out from the world that surrounded us.
The tic-toc-tic-toc- sound
Was my heart, being utterly in love with yours.
