Sweat lingers a while,
seeping through rumpled sheets
to remind you that you can still feel-
Fingers lingered longer than a butterfly
can flap its wings without falling tired;
A soft buzz, mistaken for the hummingbird;
an aggressive display of the effect of the sound
from the voice of a goddess wrapped in silk-
An airy whisper against your ears,
honey flows down your spine,
and you feel as though this is..
This is the gratification in the mind,
satisfaction to a body that responds
to the tickle of these melodies.
