Everything was in the touch.
That's what made it right.
The way his fingers seemed to know exactly how to travel on my skin.
How he found all the places that made me shiver,
With such expert hands.
I didn't even have to say, he just found it.

Everything was in the touch.

The way that under sheets,
In a room full of drunk and loud teenagers,
Celebrating the New Year in their Christmas break before returning to uni,
While someone had passed out on the floor,
So much commotion.
Lying down with his arm around me he took my hand.
In an offhand way that spoke volumes.
In a way that made it feel right,
Or at least it made it not wrong.
Not like the others,
Where there was always some thought at the back of your head,
Some awkwardness, something that made you uncomfortable.
In those moments I forgot I'd only met him that night.
It felt like I'd known his touch forever.

In those bittersweet moment that never lasted,
Those urgent moments with his mouth on mine,
My hands in his hair, him pulling me closer,
Those moments when he smiled at me,
Just smiled at me, like he didn't want to be anywhere else.

That moment when I woke up,
On the hard floor with everyone else asleep,
And looked over at him, he stirred,
Only half awake he put his hand through my hair and I kissed him.

Knowing that in a couple of hours I'd be leaving,
And I might not see him again.

Everything was in the touch.

That's the bit that I'll remember best.
Happy New Year everyone! ^^
