relishing the moment

you slid your hands down
each side of my spine
and pressed gently
realising the pain
and then went up
all the way to the neck
moisturising my skin
with the sweet almond oil
gliding easily over my shoulders
and down my arms
you touched my fingertips
and I sighed
and then my tension melted
handled deeply by the hot stones
which moved along my muscles
switched my mind off
relishing every your touch
I blacked out
leaving my body in your talking hands
and then waking up and getting dressed
I thought about
the closeness I felt
and the attentive dance
 of your palms
playing the song of relish on my skin
grateful and happy
fresh and relaxed
I looked in your green eyes and asked:
“how much?”

Relish
