These conversations are the consummation of our love!
Reading a book of verse, this thought flashed in my brain
as I compared the rich exchange of words and thoughts,
the easy intercourse of lovers who know each place to touch
and stroke and kiss with which our speech is filled.
Our hearts and minds entwine lasciviously, each familiar phrase
a sweet caress, each new idea an intimate thrust
that thrills our persons with both warmth and joy.
We bare ourselves to share a gentle ecstasy of verbal love
which we both long for and seek anew each day we live.
This intimacy that we share is private treasure
that together we can plunge in hands and lift
out heavy gleaming gold that’s hidden in our secret store.
Do you doubt that I so like this contact that I long for more?
