Back to Yesterday

I want to go back.  Back to yesterday, when the world was just us.  When all it took for the world to be right, would be for you to take me into your arms.

I close my eyes, breath deeply and whisper your name.  I’m caught up in the craving.  The  desire that takes me to yesterday.

I open my eyes and there you are.  Your hand reaches for mine once more.  You pull me close and I’m surrounded by your loving embrace.  My pulse races with delight at your touch.  Your eyes hold my gaze.  I fall deeply into the need I see in them.  I’m blissfully intoxicated by your flesh, your scent and your urgency.

I’m lost in yesterday again with you.  To stay would be insanity.

To leave would be agony.
