That's my definition of intimacy

doesn't have to be
about holding hands or sharing beds.
It can be felt in the way you never leave my
And in the way, you always know what to say.
It can be felt in sharing my every thought assured you will reply truthfully.
It can be felt in the way
i am not afraid of what I say
In the words that make my heart swell, even though they lack any obvious romance.

That's what honest intelligence will do to a girl like me.

It will make me believe.

That's my definition of intimacy
I may run from it
now and then

But don't be discouraged, my thoughts will always remain with you, even when I am gone.

It was not a choice, intimacy filled our souls touching every tender
Tia Henricks

It was not a choice, intimacy filled our souls touching every tender bone with the sleekness of silk
From blood to bone
Screeching every bit of emptiness
Swallowing any shallow monster that tended to our loneliness
From tongue to toes
Not a desperation hollows between the beauty of embrace,
A world around slows, all disspearing to his sweet kisses stealing my breath
And addiction sets in, an instant craving when distance is your temporary belonging  
And addiction such as a cigarette
Smoke filling your lungs
Only intimacy filling you heart with bright yellow flowers, desperation fulfils its duty.
Seperation, our anxiety
With howling winds a cooling breaths that is not yours every moon and star looks like you
Intimacy, a passion
A passion in touch for your hand wrapped round mine
  The sound to be dragged so close it fuses as one beat
To be brought to the insides
Craving the sense of settled home in unfamiliar places
A hunger to never leave
Bur to fall to the deepest pockets in our wholesome loving souls
Just to come back again

I'm never more in love with you
than I am in those moments
that you're at your most vulnerable

May 24, 2014

For W

Take this:

the only time I ever felt
intimate with you was that

one time you cooked me dinner
after we had done the dirty deed

and were watching a movie or
a documentary on your flatscreen TV

to be honest I don’t remember which
but your shallow breath was a slowing

hum against the nape of my neck
and all I felt in that moment was

your gradual loosening hold on
the curved silver of my waist  

as you fell gently asleep, leaving me
to wonder if I could ever get used

to this.

My hand over your heart
I can feel its rhythmic beating
Here in the pale glow of a winter's night
Here in this moment fleeting

I pull you closer into
An affectionate embrace
Ever softly, ever sweetly
I caress your face

Here in the night in the edge of slumber
Almost subconsciously our hands roam over each other's skin
We wish for this to never end
Desiring for something more to begin

Keeping one another warm
In the cold midnight dusk
Wrapped in the overlapping shadows
Of youthful love and livid lust

i used to believe that intimacy was
Ashlee Malone
Sep 9, 2014

i used to believe that intimacy was
i used to think that the joining of bodies together was
i used to think that lips should belong nowhere other than on someone

but now that i have grown into someone
i have come to realize that
making love is
because you stand there,
in a dimly-lit room,
bearing nothing
besides your own
vulnerability to the person that makes your heart swell.

and i have not experienced that, yet.
but i know that when i do,
it will be with someone that shares a love with me so
passionately and
wild and
because i do not believe that your innocence is something you should
throw away.
you should hold onto it,
until it blissfully falls from your grasp.

there are so many ordinary things in life.
and so i believe that if you are lucky enough to find a love that makes
others wish
they had the same thing,

you should never let it go.

ll in love with the ones who only crave intimacy.

don't fall in love with the ones who only crave intimacy.
the ones who are there because
they're driven by sweet words and an even sweeter kiss.
and that drive
gets higher,
it gets faster,
as more touch gets involved.
but they only crave intimacy,
while you crave something much more.
don't fall in love with the ones who will touch you
and make you feel like
you're floating,
because soon enough they'll push you to the ground,
leaving you to question everything with nothing but
the bruises and scars on your body
left over from
their touch,
their kisses,
their words.
don't fall in love with the ones who only crave intimacy.
they won't want you how you want them.
trust me,
because I crave intimacy.

I know you so well, sometimes I think
that even though it's you who has belonged to your body
for twenty eight years and eleven months, it is me
who knows every secret behind every scar, smile
and all of your skin.

Intimacy begins with the most innocent of gestur
Claire Davis

Intimacy begins with the most innocent of gestures

A curious smile

The lips speak a sweet word, yet not explicit; the intimacy prevails.

It hides behind soft kisses

a gentle touch

sometimes in your sublime presence alone the intimacy is far too much.

Intimacy is not behind closed doors
It does not always reside between sheets
It shows itself in a knowing look
In forests, shorelines, streets.

Intimacy sends you shivers through a written word or song

But between you and I it hasn't shown itself in far too long.
