You touched my life…

…You touched my life.
My life reaches the skin, moves under your smile.
And your throat and your shoulders
and your face and your thighs
… The spaces of the body
Are suddenly limitless…
Muriel Rukeyser (1913-1980)

Taking her hand, he turned it over…

…taking her hand, he turned it over and pressed his lips into the palm. Something vital, electric, leaped from him to her at the touch of his warm mouth, something that caresses her whole body thrillingly. His lips traveled to her wrist and she knew he must feel the leap of her pulse as her heart quickened and she tried to draw back her hand. She had not bargained on this– this treacherous warm tide of feeling that made her want to run her hands through his hair, to feel his lips upon her mouth. Margaret Mitchell (1900-1949)

I crossed the room, and what you…

I crossed the room, and what you did was to feel my hair over and over again and in different ways touch it, with the palm of your hand… felt it, strands of hair with your fingers, touched it as if it were cloth, the way a child touches its favorite surfaces… Edna O’Brien b. 1932

Passion such as hers is all consent, asking

Passion such as hers is all consent, asking little in return: I had merely to enter a room where she was to see her face take on that peaceful expression of one who is resting in bed. If I touched her I had the impression that all the blood in her veins was turning to honey. Marguerite Yourcenar (1903-1987)
