Inspired by “Start Me Up” by The Rolling Stones.
For The September Song Project.
Running my tongue up the back of your neck never fails to start you up.
I hear your breath catch in your throat and you make that little growling noise I love.
I feel the way your body seems both to tense and to relax simultaneously.
You’re like a coiled spring, just waiting to pounce.
When I nibble on your earlobe and exhale a warm breath against your skin, I know it won’t be long now.
I’m starting you up.
I’ll make you blow your top.
And once I start you up, you’ll never want me to stop.
