    Non touch of love

    close your eyes as you rest
    your head in my lap today
    so that I can ease the stress
    with my loving embrace;

    allow your mind to wander
    into places of peace and pure
    voice of serenity so that we
    can play amongst the grass;

    as I watch you find comfort
    and your head becomes heavy
    i gently pull your hair allowing
    it to dictate my hands direction;

    i stroke your hair until you smile
    assuring me you have accepted
    my touch and your cove of peace
    has been located in your rest;

    when I hear you release a slight sigh
    i slowly lift my hand from your hair
    continuing the stroking movement
    yet moving away with each stride;

    another sigh assures me you have
    not noticed that I no longer touch
    you in the physical sense but now I
    have entered your place of comfort;

    with my hand just a few inches away
    from your skin I slowly release into
    you the aura of my emotions as I move
    my hand slowly across your face;

    i see the smile appear when I trace
    the outline of your lips without the
    physical touches and looks to see you
    respond so willingly to my every move;

    then you let out a stronger sigh when
    you feel my hand move over your left
    shoulder and slowly down your arm to
    your hand which opens to meet mine;

    I smile when you open your eyes you
    discover that I am no longer sitting
    with your head in my lap but I am in
    the chair sitting across the room

    With my hand closed in the form of yours…

    these words
    bring such comfort to me.....
    every time i look at the chair across from me
    im expecting to see you there...

    i just want to close my eyes
    to step away from all the chaos..
    and open them only when i am in your embrace....

    this is so beautiful...

    8th!

    yes D...

    So much peace
    And poetry
    In your hands
    Your fingertips
    Have left
    A long lasting
    Impression
    On me

    Another beautiful peace

    *hand-some* ;)
