Seeking what is found

What do you see #32 photo prompt:

Memories of us lie splayed before me
As my body tingles and my pulse quickens
Even now I feel the ghost of your embrace
My mind falling down a chasm of carnality,
Reminiscing upon
the salted taste of your moist skin
beneath silken Roman sheets
and the red press of insatiable lips
careening into ecstasy

I search these maps with longing
Drawing lines of lust
and spinning a compass of cravings
Recalling the consummate aroma of fresh baking on Paris streets
and the succulent scent of late night dinners in New York bistros
Our legs sensually entangled beneath the tables

How many smiles this camera has caught!
How many times I’ve traveled and sought,
that which was always by my side
My memories of places, all memories of you

    Hard to imagine a lonely life for those who have lost their partners…
    You have expressed these words with the compassion of understanding.
