My George Peppard

If I could wish for anything right now

It would be perfection
The perfection of your kisses on my neck
Indentations of your canines placed in intentional yet careful order
From most to least, to be found by the public eye

Just to take in the scent of your wrists
The touch of your hair
And the strength of your hands braced against my hips
And a voice so quiet and so powerful
It makes the Russian language mesmerize me.

You catch my breath as soon as it escapes me
I am lost in your moleskin comforter hoping never to be found
Except by the likes of you
To be dragged onto the floor and read to
Amidst the flames of an overbearing fireplace

If I could find a way to keep you
I would do anything
Short of getting down on my knees and begging
These few days I stop and take a moment
Just to say thanks for this painful life I've lived
To bring me closer to you

Everything I've known in an instant is undiscovered territory
The mission just to taste you
And embrace that which draws my mind to your winsome eyes
Toward that Fountain of Youth inside your mind
That keeps me waiting here for more

Lovely write. This is lovely in words and in thought. What a fortunate person to be thought of like this. I also like the Russian language you mention for I am learning Russian and Spanish. Spaseeba moy padrooga!

George Peppard as in Breakfast at Tiffany's actually. Yes he was very suave and has very nice eyes. :)

I used to swoon over his lovely eyes when I was a little girl at the movies and he was in all those suave roles in technicolor---sigh!
