[...] Wir leben so dicht nebeneinander, daß wir uns im Wege sind und übereinander stoplern. Dadurch verlieren wir meiner Ansicht nach an gegenseitiger Achtung."

Kiss until my flesh glimmers gold-red. Warms to the touch from the deep scald at my core. He stops to watch. Leans his face close to my neck and smells my skin. Like I'm something he might taste.
