    He didn't dance
    around my motherly breasts
    he caressed them just as if
    they weren't missing that perkiness
    that once encircled my nipples

    He left traces of his lips
    along the walls of my thighs
    kisses smothered the stretch marks
    that surface my hips
    these that once bore children

    Tenderly he rubbed
    hand prints were visible
    from the massage he gave my belly
    he didn't mind the pudginess
    The after effect of offsprings

    Strokes of affection were constant
    as fingers parted my hair
    he embraced my wisdom
    never once did he mention
    these strands of gray

    I felt so…

    Pretty

    This is one of my favorites of yours.
    It is intimate to a fault. The attention of the beloved can definitely make us shine in a new way....

    Loved it.

    I love this piece Amberly...
    after all, beauty is fleeting
    it is the inner soul connection
    that fuels the fires of love...true flava of intimacy.
