The musk of your flesh streams
from the juice of this embrace,
and its fragrance runs over my skin
like a hand spreading sweat and desire.
In the steam of this loving, your scent drives
intertwined teeth and tongues, limbs and loins,
an aromatic frisson we share with each breath,
bringing us closer than waves seeping through sand.
You enter my muscles and cells coiled like a serpentine swell,
then unfurl to release the froth of my own musk-scented core.
Even the sheets become an ocean of musk that we ride until
night drops, heaving our bodies to shore and devouring us both.
