Discovery

Vincent O'Connor

Discovery

The long, unhurried kiss of
two people
deep in the discovery of love.

Touching,
guiding:
“Now place your hand here;
now here.”

I explore with my tongue

a feather touch
inside you
as your tentative tongue
mimics mine.

Delicate as breath
with each other
we let go
of every lesser need.

Brushed hands
Ignite iced shudders
that finally shatter
with hot pleasure
and release.

For a moment we live
the illusion
there is nothing else.
