Easing into your curves
My body spent
Craves the comfort
Of you structured
Timeless lines
Every line, crack and fold
Well-earned signs of aging
Beautifully
Arms caressed with scented oils
Legs waxed to a smooth finish
You are my welcome home
From a long day’s journey

    A chair doesn’t get any sexier than this, especially with you reading it! But what I love most is the metaphor of such a comfortable love, waiting for us all at the end of the day. Thank you for writing this.

    Thank you! It was the first time I consciously wrote something meant to be sexy and loving.
