Journey Around the World

Our senses fully stimulated and wide awake ready for our travel around the world
It’s 9 O’clock and our flight time is fast approaching
Your eyes darkens as they communicate your excitement
Our heart beat speeds up in anticipation of what’s to come
Afraid to miss a beat, your eyes remain fixated on the map

Taking in all the possible places to explore
You finally lay down the map as you continue to study its most intricate details
Your hands take a life of their own as they travel in a compass like motion
Making notes of all the hidden treasures to seek out on our journey

The plane vibrates and increases in speed as we approach the end of the runway
Our faces lights up fully aware we are close to take off
There’s no turning back now, we’re high up in the sky

We’ve landed to our first destination and your sense of adventure kicks in
You set out for the mountains climbing up and around at your slowest pace
You take in the view, making sure to stop and pay attention to the highest peaks

Climbing down, your tongue drives to our next destination to the epicenter
There you’ve reached the trigger to the warmest volcano of all times
With enough stimulation, the lava boils faster to the verge of a volcanic eruption

You continue to travel towards our last stop deep down in the south
They say down south is known for its irresistible Southern Hospitality
As proclaimed, the most succulent edibles awaits your taste buds
Your tongue takes the place of a personal chef as you sample around your meal
Sweet sounds of delight escapes your mouth as you take a bite of the main course

Unable to contain your joy, you go swimming before fully digesting your food
To your surprise, an unexpected burst of waves strikes you in the face

As you come up for air, your face displays a deep state of ecstasy
Wet fingers and teeth marks forms crosses on the soaked map
Nearby, the smell of the ocean intoxicates your mind
Eager and willing to explore it all, you dive head first
Indicating all locations you’ve traveled

Fully satisfied with our first journey, we prepare ourselves for next stop
Between the turbulence of the plane and the pulsating beats of our hearts
We board the plane as we engage in a deep satisfying kiss
We brace ourselves before we come crashing down
Landing safely at our next destination up north

My mouth waters in anticipation of what pleasures my exploration will bring
