Shameless self-promotion of my writing skills or lack there of.

The Thrill of the Chase

Footsteps, echoing softly, loudly, fading away.
The image, the memory, the experience remains.
Breath, quick, near panting…excited.
Contact, the brush of hair against skin.
Is it intended? Does she know?
The hunt has begun, the chase, the thrill.
The smell of her is on the air, perfume, morning dew.
Sweat would make it sweeter.
Her pace quickens, erratic, intoxicating.
Movement is a game, duck, bob, weave,…touch.
Skin against skin, fingers to lips, hands to hair, mouth...

Tease, twist, leave before the scent overcomes.
The street outside is loud, cars, people, life.
The room is crowded.
Where did she go?
Is she ill, repulsed, sad, angry…scared?
The smell of fear, pain, worry…unwanted.
Alone, furious, aware, too much time to think.
Driven, the need is too much.
Need to touch, to feel, to smell, to…taste.

The hunt resumes, calmly, quickly, softly, frantically.
She has returned, stoic, lovely, unmoving, unwanted…untainted.
Eyes meet, a connection, a near memory, unclear,
A smile, movement, drawn closer.
The scent reminds her, the scent stirs feelings, emotions, thoughts.
The clouds part, recollection, fear, run, stay, passion desire.
Darkness, the crowd disappears, only two people, two hearts.
The familiarity of touch, stroking of hair, caress of skin.
The kiss, moist, firm, soft, urgent, slow, warm.
Warmth surrounds the skin, visible, tangible.
Eyes close, lips move, cheek, ear, throat.
Mouth opens, anticipation.
Body shudders, realization, horror, trauma…ecstasy
Mouth closes, teeth puncture, flow, transfer, power.
A whimper escapes, shame, love, hate, more.
Coupled, lost in the moment, lost…satiated.
Collapse, arms folded on bar, head rests against them.
The finale closes in, sleep, for both.
One until the sun sets again, the other until…rapture.
