Our Secret Space – Love, Sex & Poetry
By: Linda A. Long

The moment
When we are alone
For the first time
Our eyes meet and
My lips invite yours
To meet mine
The moment you finally
Taste my essence
What will it
Be like
How will you taste
Will I be nervous
Or will I exhale slowly
Into our union
And rest into
Our secret space
My heart beats
Outside of my
Own body
I now look at you
Differently
I feel a comfort knowing
You are near
It seems strange at times
I wasn’t looking
Especially not
Where we found each other
But there you where
And here I am
Somewhere in the middle
Of a wild crush
But feeling like
You are a long lost friend
I found once again
Reincarnation or maybe a
Karmic relationship
It was your eyes
That set my body on fire
It was a kindling deep within
Part of me wonders
What would have
Happened if we just
Gave in and acted
On the sexually attraction
So long ago
Would it have burned out
Would it have ended poorly
Would it have grown
Sex is so easy yet complicated
It’s never casual
No, I am glad
We were cautious
Too much too lose
For both
I am enjoying the slow build
This affection I feel for you
Yet I hide it
When others are present
I am only safe in our
Secret space
I am glad
Time passed
And trust grew
I am grateful for
Our deepening connection
My Desire for you flourishes
With each new day
Mostly I enjoy
The secret space
We share
Through our thoughts
You are my favorite spiritual playmate
Rest easy in our secret space
For I will connect my soul to yours
One poem at a time
I will tie my heart to yours
With my words
And lay next to you
In bed
In our secret space
I am with you
In our secret space.

Note: I was journaling tonight and this is what came out. It’s kind of a poem, kind of a letter and little bit of an essay. But it’s what I feel genuinely. I write what feel. I write my truth. This is my truth.

The inspiration for the title of this work came from one of my favorite songs – Shut Your Eyes By: Snow Patrol. Check out the video on YouTube: http://youtu.be/x3jFcZjv_kk .

    Linda,
    Delightful.
    Evocative.
    Searing honesty.
    Beautifully crafted and refined.
    Exemplary
    Hauntingly quixotic

  2. Thank you. It just flowed out. Not sure if it’s a poem or a confession of sorts… 🙂
