Content In Love

I’ll press you up against the wall
Cradle your face in my hands and kiss you long and deep with passion
If you’ll wrap your legs around me
Clasp your hands behind my neck, pull me in and throw away all caution
Reminding me once again why it is I choose to stay

I’ll lay you out across the bed
Crawl my way up to meet you, brush against you, just to make you tremble
If you’ll arch your back beneath me
Drag your fingers along my spine, leaving traces, forgetting to be gentle
Losing ourselves, trading roles of predator and prey

I’ll chase my fervent kisses over you
Chase them where they lead, hungry for your body and the way it feeds me
If you’ll close your eyes, bite your lip
Anticipate where they’ll land – your breasts, your neck, behind your knees
Surrendering yourself to wherever they may lay

I’ll grip your body by your hips
Let you feel my breath as I gently bite and lick my way across your middle
If you’ll curl your fingers in my hair
Take me prisoner between your thighs and encourage me with your giggles
Barely checked excitement lending fuel to our play

I’ll slide my fingers between yours
Stretch your arms above your head as you welcome me in, I enter you slowly
If you’ll steal my heart with your eyes
Say you love me without speaking, share your secrets with me, for me only
The craving that grows with each new thrust enslaves

I’ll slide my arm around your back
Raise you up and kiss you madly until we surrender ourselves completely
If you’ll bury your head in my shoulder
Hold me tight while your body grows taut and tremors come breathlessly
Collapsing together, our longing for the moment at bay

I’ll be your biggest supporter
Carry your luggage, hold your hair when you pay for too much drinking
If you’ll kiss me on my forehead
Hold my face in your hands and chastise me for too much over-thinking
Reminding me once again why it is I choose to stay

Then I’ll be content in love.
