Inspired by thoughts on Girl on the Net’s Eye Contact Challenge

I only recently realised that for the first time with any partner, I spend a lot of time looking at him when we’re having sex. Watching his handsome, expressive face narrate his sensations and emotions while we are intimate, gives me thrills that I’m new to but am now utterly addicted to.

This is for him

A Good Look

I opened my eyes, and it was revelation;


against mist-shroud memory

or fog-blurred fantasy

wisping through safety’s darkness

in blanket protection

I opened my eyes, and found unexpected,


hunger for your expressions

thirst for desire

magnified and reflected

tasting of joy

I opened my eyes and revealed myself,

saw what I felt

was mirrored in yours
