She’s not there but her scent lingers.
He idly touches her things
the silk robe, the soft chemise she wears to bed
the lace top stockings she wore to dinner the evening before.
He lifts them to his face, inhaling her scent
remembering how she looked fresh from her bath
her countenance rosy as she smoothed the lotion over calves and thighs
his eyes tracking the movements of her fingers
enjoying the way her skin looked
the muscles underneath moving with every new motion.
He rubs the silk against his cheek
remembering how it felt under his hands as he stroked her thigh under the table.
His fingers moving ever inward and upward.
Her dress no barrier to his questing hands
finding the edge of her lace knickers and slipping underneath.
Touching her heat, her wetness.
Knowing she would not betray his actions
delighting in their game.
He remembers how quickly their clothes were discarded
once they were alone.
How he had her keep her stockings and heels on as he bent her over the hall table
her bare breasts flat against the cool and shiny surface
their reflection in the hall mirror
an erotic capture
showing how he slowly
entered her from behind.
Feeling himself harden with the memory
he smiles in pleasure
as he hears her key in the door…
* This is not new but I like it and it is true a scent, a taste…it can be the simplest of things that brings a flood of memories back.
