Her fingertips speak
My tired shoulders listen and obey
A Sunday Afternoon type calm
possesses my worn out body
Eyelids descend.

Her fingertips dance
across my shoulders and back
A relaxing rhythm
Painting unique prints of affection onto my tired Canvas of flesh

Her fingertips fade into the distance
I start Sinking deeper,
to the place where sleep dwells
I want to go there
I want to go there.
