Summer Lover

I lie here in anticipation
Soaking you in
My skin glows
From the weight of your heat
Pressed against me
Burning me
The scent of us
Reaching my nostrils
Soothing me
Lying still
Begging for more
You hide behind a cloud
Returning to caress me
Again and again
I absorb you greedily
Not wanting this to end
Again you cloud over
Leaving me behind
Yearning to feel your heat once more

I love being warm. I love feeling the heat of the sun on my skin. So I thought about how it would be if the sun were a lover. 


  1. nice. we have had the heat this the 80s mostly...feels nice to be out in shorts and a t shirt...maybe even going bare foot in the grass...
