1. I miss getting ready and waiting for your arrival
2. I miss opening the side hatch and watching you reverse step into my home. Into my world
3. I miss the first smile and then kiss. The exchange of the money in an envelope. A drink in your hand
4. The leading you down to the bedroom and stiing on the bed. I watch you undress
5. You watch me, watching and remove the lace from my body with your mind as if you were peeling away my armour
6. I miss the touch of your skin as we embrace: that wet, erotic deliciousness that becomes our dance. Ours. All ours
7. I miss that hour and a half where nothing else matters. We are everything we need in that moment
8. And I miss the way you leave. The warm embrace after your shower. Lustful sin is cleaned. I miss that closeness
"I'll see you soon"
9. And when you step back out of the hatch and into the world, I squeeze your bum and wave you goodbye
10. We are bathed in the afterglow. I tidy.
And prepare for another you
I miss my work.
