Haven't we all been there -- or, haven't we...


In my mind
watching but unseen
I surround you
like steam from a shower

Rivulets of my gaze
stream across your flesh
circumnavigating each hair
racing down each curve
eager to reach the next
 
My thoughts cling
to the simplicity
of your nakedness
like droplets of desire
for tactile
olfactory presence
 
I am the water
the towel, the mirror
each grooming implement
I service your intimacy
with your body
as if it were my own
to touch at will
 
In my mind
you find in me
a safe place
for your ritual of self
 
I am not
