Making Do

God, he was lovely.

There was a steadiness in his movements, and a firmness in his hands when he pressed her down against the bed. And there was a building need in his hips as he ground over, and over into her. He pressed insistent against her very best inner places, rooting himself inside her. And soon, everything for her was sensation. Shivering, vibrant sensation.

Which is why she sweated frustration when she woke up alone, empty and oversexed, in a standard issue extra-long twin cot. Martha rubbed her fingers over her tired lids and then blinked rapidly, waiting for the digital clock beside her bed to come into focus.


This earned a small grunt. It was not unusual for her, to have dreams like these. Merely irksome. Because she never actually made it to orgasm in a dream for the same reason that she never died in a nightmare; her increased heart rate would simply wake her up in the nick of time. And so here she sat in bed, chest pounding, adrenaline prickling her skin—tense from the waist down for the concept of a man already half faded from her conscious.

I want to wreck myself on you.
To trace your body’s sloping lines
until I prick my fingertips on rising gooseflesh
to bring your pulse to a simmered throb
until I burn my tongue on your skin.

I want to lose my grip,
in the slickness of your sweat
And tumble,
and tumble,
over and under you.

I want you to wreck yourself on me.
To scrape your ears on my shallowest gasps
until they’re raw as my reddened skin.
To shudder apart on my tremoring hips
until you bear down in the ravage of collapse.

I want to feel your grip,
anchored dire on my wrists
And give,
and give,
all you’ll have of me.

And when we’ve wasted each other to shells
and can only lie crumbled, breath shuddered and spent,
Then might we rest sure in the glow of debris–

My husk will surrender to yours in the morning.
