Making Love

You thrust into me as if you’ve finally returned home

My breath escapes me in a gust

You fleetingly leave me only to come back again

I close my eyes and hold on

You leave again but this time you do not come back so I open my eyes

Holding my gaze captive with yours, you fill me again

Retelling me how I empty I am without you

So I massage you while you shudder unable to move

My own way of reminding you the emptiness goes both ways

Arching into each other, we both declare our love coming into completion together

The proof of our love going forth to make another
