All it’s laughter, all souls enjoy. Continue reading →
His eyes meet mine, Through lowered lashes I glance back. I feel my heart skipping a beat, A sharp intake of breath. Warm body pressed against my own, My body moulding into his. Hand travels slowly down my back, He pulls me closer, We are locked. A soft Continue reading →
I come to you naked,
My dreams and fears
Resting on the surface of

you were always there with me) Continue reading →
