We sit across from each other, wine glass in hand, fireplace glowing. The lounge is buzzing with activity but we are in our own world. Talking, laughing, just enjoying each other.
We’ve been here for hours and yet it seems like time has flown by.
Watching every motion
In my foolish lover’s game
On this endless ocean
Finally lovers know no shame
Turning and returning
To some secret place inside
We finish our drinks and head to the elevator. The doors open and we get in, press the button for our floor and kiss. I can see us reflected in the mirrors all around. The elevator slows and there is a ding as the door slides open. I slide my hand into your back pocket as we head to our room.
You open the door and we step inside. The city lights are bright outside the window and the bed is turned down, chocolate on the pillow. I take your hand and pull you into the bathroom, kicking my shoes off before I get inside.
I motioned towards the tub and you start the water. You put in some bubble bath. “Strip,’ I say and you take off your clothes. I watch you and you give me a shy grin.
“Get in,” I say as I start to slowly remove my skirt, almost a striptease. You settle back and watch as I unbutton my shirt, unclasp my bra and slide my underwear down.
I slip into the water with you and I lean back against your chest. You kiss my neck and your hands slide down my body, slippery with the bubbles. And then….
Watching in slow motion
As you turn around and say
Take my breath away
