She leaned over and whispered to him
and her breath
teased his neck
he strained to conceal
the slightest shudder
as his heart paused
before trembling and beating faster
the cool chill from her breath
imposed a passion
burning down his body
and the energy surged within him
within his loins
within his entire being
and he thought
“Yes I love you, I want you,
yes I need you, my love”
yet she had only said,
as they sat in the cinema,
“Could you please pass the popcorn?”
