It Hasn’t Been That Long

Guest Post by Ayo Sekai

It hasn’t been that long
But lately, you have been marinating in my thoughts
Salivating images that make me throb and my heart beats fasters
With every inclination of you

It hasn’t been that long
Yet you are perusing beneath my skin
Leaving me itching in a way I have forgotten could feel so good
Stirring mind with palpitating palate drenching excitement

It hasn’t been that long
Too short really
Too short to feel breathtaking sighs
And passion-filled wetness sending pheromones from my thighs
Too short to sit holding hands in the park
Basking in the sun
Too soon to want to wrap myself around the strength of your muscular body
Too quickly have I opened up to you
Sensationalized excitement for new possibilities

It hasn’t been that long
Yet I feel I have been laughing at your silly sense of humor forever
Escalated dreams filled with daily desires to romance you is captivating me
So easily you were able to convince me with your smile
Seduce me with your kiss
Serenade me with your passionate optimism

But I am left in a quagmire
Does anyone have a remedy?
A panacea for this dilemma
It hasn’t been that long
Yet it’s been forever
Haven’t been that long
Yet you are everlasting

It hasn’t been that long…
