unfold (an erotic poem)

your lips take in the length of my neck
i sigh as i open towards you
release of air, tension leaving my body
i am nervous as i unfold to you, my thighs slowly part as
your fingers gently whisper across that skin, rose petals, velvet soft
your warm hand soothes me, keeping me grounded to this time and place
our lips meet, your body presses into mine providing direction
i tremble, i am shy, i need reassurance
you sense it and adjust your guidance
your firmness and warmth take me where i need to be
i know this moment like i know my own mind yet
i gasp when you enter me, until this moment
i did not understand my need
but you did…thank you
