Soon after becoming sober I met a man who reintroduced me to the pleasures of touch.  This poem is dedicated to him.  Thank you Jermaine for the tenderness you’ve always shown me.

For too long I’d been deprived of touch.  I’d given and given as much as I could without receiving anything in return, because it was the only way I could experience touch, which is so vital to my existence.  I didn’t know how vital.  I didn’t know I’d been starving all this time.

I’m sitting on my lovers lap.  Chest to chest, skin to skin.  His hands, so gentle carress my hair, my arms, my legs, my feet, my hips, my back.  Initially I’m slightly rigid.  Sitting very straight backed, not relaxed at all.  As the touch continues, I feel myself relaxing, begining to enjoy the touch for what it is rather then getting excited for what is to come. 

I feel myself melting.  My muscles and joints start relaxing.  I can no longer sit up straight, I put my head down on my lover’s shoulder and breathe.  I find myself breathing, deep sighs, over and over.  I lay there, silent, breathing, enjoying the touch, relaxing.  And I thank god for this moment, this touch that has been brought into my life.



About Ms Fihaki

Thanks so much for checking out my blog! I’m supposed to write about me – who I am as a person and I really don’t see the sense in that considering that when you read my posts you will learn more about me as a person than you would from any 500 word statement I could make. I will however play by the rules – just this once. I’m 36 years young. I consider myself a strong independant and beautiful woman (hey! I wrote about that! Check it out!). I’m single and love it. Just over a year ago I made some serious lifestyle changes which include eliminating alcohol from my diet, being more physically active, eating healthier and daily working on my spirituality. One of the things which has happened as a result of these lifestyle changes is that I’ve gained a level of clarity I never knew was possible. With this clarity comes the realization that my words affect the lives of those around me. I’ve always been much better at writing than at speaking. If I can affect people the way I do from speaking, just imagine the effect I can have with the written word! I had been blogging about my secret life doing sensual massage – but I wasn’t getting a lot of traffic or interraction from that blog. Upon the suggestion of several friends I decided to start this – my public blog. My hope is that this will allow my readers to interact with me, a real live human being and that together we can create a ripple effect of positivity throughout the universe! (yea I dream big – it’s a must!) Anywho – I sincerely hope you enjoy the things I have to say and interractions are welcome and encouraged! Be Well!
