I am tired: a long day of formal smiles and polite words. For many dull hours I have comforted myself with thoughts of solitude.
What foolishness! Would I rather be alone? Nay, ’tis not so.
His mouth, hungry for mine, devours my troubles. His hands strip away my cares, as easily as he sheds my raiment. He pays homage with more than lips and looks. I grow hot, yet do not grudge it. Under his gentle touch, I am renewed, revived.
No need to force soft smiles or search for sweet words. They burst from me unbidden at the end.
