In The Afterglow


Paul Curtis

She lay serenely in the afterglow

The sweat of passion spent

Vaporized and no more

Her hair tousled, Frames a peaceful face

The red glow of the cheeks still visible

Her eyes resting, her mouth open slightly

Her full lips still moist, her pale skin smooth

No hint remains of what passed

The contortions of orgasm

Which were etched into her innocent face

Linger no more but shall again soon

She lies beneath a silken sheet

Stretched more tightly across her breasts

Showing them in sharp relief

The cool air from the open window

Arouses her nipples

Which stand proud through the silk

She murmurs in her sleep and squirms in unison

As her arousal continues elsewhere

If her lover does not return

Her satisfaction will be in her own hand
