Miles and I : GNS Repost (For Cindy)

Rate: 24 Flag

Miles and I, we slake the night
 
full on shift to manual
 
slip to 80
 
Miles leans back and smiles
 
Miles is the tilt in my hips
 
Miles is agave,  as it hits my feet
 
comes back up  hot 
 
Miles is the cold breaking wave on my head
 
hair dripping
 
last vestiges of clothes on sand
 
as I hit the night surf
 
Miles is the small bead of sweat
 
under my hair
 
unshaven chin rough against my neck
 
dancing late into the night
 
Miles meets me at midnight
 
Miles and I
 
we are friends with the dark
 
we take comfort in the shadow
 
Miles leads me to country roads
 
leans back
 
gives me the go ahead signal
 
turbo rising
 
red wine and sex
 
sweat and trumpet
 
Miles and I
 
we slake the night. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Originally posted October 2010, hope it's new for some and a nice look back for others here. Had a few requests and felt like a little Miles myself.
Generique is from the soundtrack to a French film by Louis Malle that Miles did. Amazing if you get a chance to hear or watch on Youtube his performing Ascenseur pour l'échafaud 
is the name of the album.
