Mmmm, no explanations needed ...

In the Afterglow

Lying in bed,
holding off reality,
Iím caught
in the cozy place
between dream
and fantasy.
Heart slowing
back to a walk,
Iím wondering,
does it get any better
than this?
A lingering taste,
man-woman scent
hovering in the air,
is it any wonder
the mindís eye
is still open,
watching what is past?
How astonishing,
the way the brain
lays a path
to a womanís senses
so they remain
heightened and alive,
though the moment is
only a sweet memory.
His body,
all warm and sensual,
enfolds mine
as he sleep-sighs
next to me
in the afterglow.

You warm the soul of the romantic with such a sensual visualization of this bedroom interlude. I love it.

Soft and magnifiscent. I don't think colors, smells, taste or touch are anymore heightened than at those moments. Bliss is the perfect word to describe the abundance of feeling in this poem.

Lying in bed, holding off reality,
Iím caught in the cozy place
between dream and fantasy...I love how "Afterglow" starts of shining these lines, and yes, isn't it funny how a women's senses are so much more heightened after the fact, "Afterglow"
Excellent write~
Love and Peace~
