A blossoming thirst

It is a defining moment,
The perfect act of trust,
So easy to let it be a lesser thing,
Consumed by the fires of lust,

I breath you in,
You breath in me,
We close our eyes anticipating,
How good it might be,

We have danced this dance,
So innocently,
Longing to touch each other,
So decadently,
Brushing against certainties,
In the uncertainties of firsts.

But banked fires build,
And neither of us,
Dare to commit to that final move,
Afraid to lose what we have gained,

Denial is just kindling to the flame,
Should we, shouldn’t we?
The new game of love,
Or lovers that we play,

If it’s love, it will wait,
If it’s love, it will never be too late,
If it’s love, I can wait,
Your move…
