Unchained Melody

He caressed my knee, his thumb rubbing smoothly on my pale skin.

I leaned my head back into his, smelling the musk on his hair.

Hand to his hand, I traced his protruding bones.

I held it for life as his other hand went to my shirt.

Button after button, they all came off.

At the very last, he held on, playing with the tuff on my stomach.

He reached in and grazed his hand on my chest.

I put my hand around his head and moved him closer.

His breathing warmed my neck.

One of his hands on my thigh, the other on my chest.

I edged my foot towards his, heel to toe.

His big toe dug firmly against my ankle.

His hand moved from my thigh to peel off my shirt.

He kisses me on my nape.

My back arches.

We watch the moon slowly set.


This is the 100 Songs Project, a 100-day writing challenge based on AFI’s 100 Years…100 Songs. Every day, I write a short poem, prose piece, or play based on, reacting to, rejecting, accepting, or doing something related to one of the songs in the top 100 list.
