Day One

a Poem by Raquel Swann

As we lay here, I lean over

notice your back facing me

steady breaths and cute noises,

while you sleep.

What about me, tonight?

Remember the days

when we couldn’t keep hands off

The smell of summer rain,

lips as soft as silk,

fingers caressing every crevice,

every inch of skin never neglected

those nights when the fifteen minute

drive home was far too long.

A parked car behind office buildings

lust and love were one in the same.

Along the way things changed,

but I still remember how it feels

the taste of you stained in my memories.

After all these long difficult years,

I still thirst for your touch.

Wake me up in the morning with a kiss,

let’s relive day one, everyday,

from now until forever.
