He agrees to meet her at midnight always his favorite encounter. He loves the way she moves, her breathless sighs that emanate from deep within her. Her skin is soft, it gives his heart a nudge. And her smile serves to melt him, to Help him breathe her in, for being With her is a gift from heaven. It is hard To not be enraptured by her with lips pressed Together in a loving kiss, and In the morning mist, find himself breathless. © Walter J Wojtanik – 2021 **A Golden Shovel poem taken from “KINDLING” by Paula Riggs midnight encounter moves from soft nudge to being hard pressed and breathless.
