It Rained Again Last Night

It started light
Just a trickle
A whisper
A nibble on my lobe
Finger brushed a stray hair away
A dark cloud, you hovered over me
With a promise of rain
Musk heavy in my nostrils
Larger drops now fell
Filling my mouth
Flowing down my neck
Rivulets formed between my mountains
Then flooded and submerged them
Coursed and surged as they flowed southward
You completely overshadowed me
Rain pelted my already dampened skin
Moisture puddled where the storm raged the fiercest
Heat intensified until Crack! went the lightning
Thunder reverberated through my earth and your sky
Boisterous tempest in every vein
Reluctantly the rumble of the thunder faded away
Cloudburst subsided into a euphoric shower
Hand lost itself in hair
Another drop on my lips
Into my mouth
Pirouetting with my tongue
Sucking my lip on the release
Another nibble
Another whisper
And all was still again

  1. So intense, romantic and sensuous. Love the use of the rain as a backdrop to paint the bigger picture! Loved the flow from the beginning to the storm to the beautiful and finish of the ending. Bellissimo, Linda!!

      1. I’m so relieved that you weren’t offended by my comment–I have a high regard for the physical love God designed us to enjoy in the proper context of marriage. I just don’t like to see it devalued by “art” which leaves the glory of God out of it, reducing it to base animal instincts. PS–Will reply to your personal note when I get a free minute this weekend 🙂
