Loves Embrace

Hold me close so that I may feel your weathered cheek against mine

My bosom pounding

My body quivering

Seize me and brush your lips against my exposed neck

My face buried deeply in your chest

With eyes closed I am savouring the earthy musk of your scent

I am safe here in your arms

Keep your hold on me

So that I may not faint and become lost to you

Your breath but a whisper

Desires me to be even closer

Safe I am in your arms

Warrior of the forest

Rapt we are together

In loves embrace

About moosewalker

Recently I have learned to accept myself imperfections and all. I have always defined myself through others because I was afraid. Afraid to let people see the real me, afraid they may not like me, afraid they may break my heart. Standing here today I’ve been through all of that and I’m OK. I have found my voice through my writing and although I am a work in progress I finally feel free. Expressing myself and being honest with myself has allowed me to emerge from my shell. I haven’t completely discarded it for it’s been my hiding place all of my life. I’ve just redecorated! My greatest joy comes from having my words delight, inspire and move you. Please put your comments I love reading them. “Standing on the rock arms outstretched I can touch heaven and earth “ Love Always, Heather
