    The way you held her body was so sexual, so intimate
    It almost sent shivers up my spine just to watch you
    I marvelled at your gentleness when you touched her
    So softly
    I watched as you placed the back of your hand on her face
    Slowly letting your fingers fall across her cheek
    Then you traced the outline of her lips with just one finger
    Very slowly
    She smiled at you and looked deep into your eyes
    You acted so familiar with her body, so comfortable
    Like you'd touched and caressed her a million times before
    Like that
    Then you kissed her, it nearly took my breath away
    I could taste that kiss, a deep, slow, wet, lingering kiss
    The kind of kiss that lifts you off your feet
    So passionate
    I knew it wouldn't be long before you made love to her
    Flying her to heaven on the wings of passion
    Sending her spinning through the stars in ecstacy
    Loving her
    I know all the moves you make, each and every one
    I have felt what she is feeling, a million times
    When you made my body dance to your love songs
    Before her
    Tonight you'll leave her bed, somewhere around midnight
    You'll leave a piece of your heart behind for her to keep
    A piece just big enough to keep her holding on
    Foolish woman
    Then you'll go home to your wife and tell her you love her
    Tell her some story about working late again
    She never questions you, so you think you have it made
    You're wrong
    I can see the imprint of her hands all over your body
    The body of my husband and father of my children
    The body of my childhood sweetheart and forever love
    My man
    So I let you live your lies, and as I watch you now
    My heart shatters into pieces, like a thousand times before
    I turn and walk away, staying silent, because I love you
    Always will

    *chills up my spine*

    sometimes love is a mystery

    but share his dreams with me" wendy waldman
