    Smoke And Ash

    I've imagined you standing before me looking into my eyes as deeply as I look into yours. And with one kiss I am entirely yours... Your hands all over my body discovering the undiscovered. My heart racing My breath trying to catch up. I am overcome by wild and heavy...

    The Craftsmen (a Poem)
