I stretch out my arm and pull her tightly against my chest, caressing her frail frame as the embrace is consummated.  My buried countenance revels in the freshness of her fragrance as I smother the creamy flesh of her neck with moist tokens of my affections.  Involuntarily my eyes close and in this dreamy condition all I can think of is the pleasure I receive from and wish to give to the one under whose spell I have fallen.  As we touch, we gaze so deeply into one another’s eyes that we see past the mere visionary organs into the depths of one another’s minds, and without a word, we say to each other, “I love you!”
