Like magnets drawn together,
slowly, barely touching, warm breath over flesh.
His prolonging became unbearable,
her will weakening, her resolve diminishing.

Slowly, shyly, she opened herself a fraction to him.
He leaned in gently, caring, considerate at first,
not wanting to alarm or frighten, this her first time.

Then he became more insistent, more passionate.
She returned his ardor as he slipped in further,
wrestling together, slipping and sliding,
unrelenting, until she could stand no more.

Pushing him from her, his eyes bore into her soul,
mesmerizing, drawing her back.

They clung together, exploring the recesses, deliciously slick and wet,
his lust evident as his hands roamed over her body.
His tongue thrust in deeper, taking her breath away,
knowing that with this first kiss, she would be changed forever.
