Cravings

I want to entwine our legs in comfortable silence. I want to hold your hand and feel the warmth of your skin pressing into my flesh. I want to be protected and to protect with fierce abandon. I want to cradle your precious head in my lap when you are weary. I want to be held when the demons are lapping at my heals with their flames of fear and be assured they won't, can't, will ever pass through your guardian arms.

I want to laugh with you until tears are streaming down our faces. Until the muscles in our cheeks pain with bliss. I want to let apprehension and worry slip down my back like silk folding onto the floor. I want to be lifted to a higher place. I want to catch you when you fall and stand beside you when you triumph. Graceful pride emanating.

I want to be loved until my heart threatens to shatter. I want to make you feel like the most important person in the room. Every room. I want to drift to sleep with the sweet taste of you still on my lips. I want to feel you even when you're not there. I want to be accepted for who I am. I want to partner in struggle and joy. I want to gently caress your neck and breathe you deeply in.

I want contentment to wash over restless souls and pool at our feet. I want to catch your gaze across a crowded hall and feel my heart skip a beat in excited anticipation. I want to lay under the stars and hear your every wish. I want to be rescued from my dark dreams. I want to envelope you with tenderness. I want to finally take that long held breath. I want to embrace the rapture of you.

These are my desires.

The first of my desires that comes immediately to mind is that you get all of those things as soon as possible. The rest are eerily similar to yours.
