Its not always felt so vulnerable. Its endearing now.

Blushing Decade

how our faces still blush after all these years
as if we had not seen it all

how dancing can still be awkward when you watch

I still pull the towel around myself after I shower
You still hide behind the curtain when you are asking me for the soap from across the room

Knowing every detail
the roundness of my belly when I am pregnant
the skin tag hidden in an intimate place

When our defenses fall we are left with a cozy sweet familiar embrace

The mystery of substance unveiled,
the grace of our hesitation still alluding to a moment of clarity between two bodies

We linger in the warmth and nakedness under the sheets
never strangers,
how can this purity still live in a home where
every wall
has seen
every flaw

Just around the corner we hide from one another
Anticipating every touch
and kiss
even after thousands of touches
and kisses

How we are still so precious
in love

  This is quite the beautiful thing. Everything having its place. A way to be intimate, but to stay modest. You seem to have quite the healthy relationship with your husband. Love is best served with equal parts health. Enjoy that meal, and may it last a lifetime.

  Love is a unique flower bloomed from rich soil (the heart) Although I never had such experience and am afraid of such things I do my best to accept it. There is the human part of me that longs for it yet the phobia which confuses both brain and heart. I do love seeing others blossom in their marriage and get married period for it is taken for granted and not as frequent as it should be. Marriage is a beautiful thing. I do like this piece it makes me smile.

  Sounds like a good place to be in marriage. One that still has some pretense of mystery to keep the partners intrigued and interested. After 20 yrs my husband is still a bit quirky about frontal nudity after a shower, but its endearing because my fingertips now every bump and line if his body. I think love grows stronger because of the foibles not in spite of them. We are only self-conscious around people whose opinions really matter. The rest of the world can go hang.

  This reminds me of a note I read years ago:

If I were you and you were me
and we passed on another on eternal seas
which one or the other would I be
if I were you and you were me?

What we should know of each other, we often don't.

  I think I agree. No matter how familiar we become as lovers we must still consider each other a mystery to be explored!
