Pulling your closer
Gently reassuring you
I’ll always be there
Soothing words murmured faintly
Hoping you will understand

Ritu 2018

And some free verse…

Velvety petals
Crushed beneath our hot bodies
Hands clasping
Smooth sheets below
Quickly reaching
Quiet climax
Clutching each other
You complete me
