Stops and starts

the look,
the smile,
the silent contract
made across a crowded room.

the touch,
on skin, traced
in heat.

the lips part,
the heat radiates,
joins, excites, blends,

the wet cools,
thrills, moves, heats.
tracing our paths with touch,
with heat and passion.

movement in union,
the stars ascend.
the time removed,
stopped and gone.

heat recedes, the tide
contracts,
the breath softens,
stops.
and starts again.

Stops and starts
