Time freezes, abruptness brings shallow halted breath,
proximity warnings scream ignored warnings.
Downy hairs twitch, caressed by thrown whorls.
approach slows, awareness becomes fuzzy and indistinct.
Thoughts cease as consiciousness slams a single point.
Skin prickles in hyper awareness,
shock registers throughout paralyzed flesh.
Nerves scream for attention.
Messages send warmth and tickled movement,
awareness prods gaps causing indrawn breath
Endorphines wane as action becomes apparent,
muscles relax, dreams and wishes become now
Noises intrude smashing focused surface tension
hairs settle back into comfortable channels
Contact begs for more, spreading like wildfire
Leaning forward, I curl into warm embraces.
