Modern love

I want to feel the heat 
of your breath on my skin
with the contours of your body
moving seamlessly with mine

where all conversation ends
as we drown in our completeness

wrap my fingers around
the soft tufts of hair
at the nape of your neck
and taste the sea of you

feel your arms
weathered and strong
pulled around me, tightly
holding me safe as though
the world will never end
