Unadulterated Simplicity

No, it's not just the booze talking.
It's not cuz of the backrub.
Definitely not cuz "Shaft" is a turn-on.
Simply being alone with you
in your house,
on your couch,
we sit.
Laughing at the corny late-nite movie
with stupid comments to spare.
You with your arm around me,
me half asleep.
I'm the sleeping "beauty"
and you're the valiant prince
who awakens me with a kiss.
Our first.
All the while I'm intoxicated
. . . In more ways then one  <3
