Can You Imagine

Can you imagine

This passion we share
Thunder clapping
As I clasped your hair
The light from above
Lightning strikes deep
Climax in unison
Pleasure so deep
Eyes locked in focus
Sweet kisses we reap
Air shared in abundance
Snuggled spooning complete

Feel us enter
A love that’s so rare
Hearts beating together
Together as one
Whispering forever
True love never ends
Brushing your hair softly
Fingers to cheek
Closeness of bodies
Drift off to sleep
Goodnight sweet dreams

Friendship is, on Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, the first item under the Love and Belonging category, just above thefundamental physiological and safety needs, and just below self-esteem and self-realization. Whether or not Maslow got it right is up for debate, but one thing’s clear – life without friends is a lonely vagabondage, which makes even the most solitary and self-sufficient of us feel that something is missing.

A friend can tell you things you don’t want to tell yourself.” – Frances Ward Weller
