Lay With You

Sometimes I just want to lay with you.
Because days are busy and hurried
And sometimes I forget how to breathe
So I need your arms to remind me
Of how to feel
So sometimes I just want to lay with you.
Let the words write themselves upon our palms
Let them entertwine
We could write sonnets with our silence
Forget our assignments
My back to your chest
Your right leg on my left
Your breath on my neck
I just want to lay with you
Because I spend all day move
Around corners, around orders
And I tend to forget how it feels to be still
I don't want to have to tell you my heart is aching
I don't want to hear the sound of promises breaking
Making love is fine; but sometimes I just want to lay there.
Fully clothed.
No makeup.
Eyes closed.
Hold me until my secrets unfold.
My heart is cold and your arms are the only warmth it knows
No words to be spoke
I know, it's difficult to find time to be alone
But if we could hold on to the hours, the minutes, the seconds,
I reckon we could be free of our insecurities.
I just want to lay with you.
In solitude.
In our purest of forms.
Lay with you until the sheets are torn.
Place wisps of bliss on the small of my neck
Because laying with you is better than sex
I just want to embrace your essence
And inhale your sweet scent without the interruption of nonsense
Lets just lay here and pretend as though we are empty
And fill each other with lovely ecstasy

I just want to lay with you.
Until I forget how to move.

Love, Tianamonique.

This was can't even find the words, but it was perfect!
everything, ABSOLUTELY everything i have felt at one point in time!
I even have a post titled "Silence", inspired from this very experience: laying with someone who warms & holds your heart!!
