I'm Glad I Don't Have Long Fingernails

I'm glad that I don't have any fingernails to speak of; at least long ones.
They make it sound so sexy to run your long fingernails down your lovers back,
But I'd rather feel the warmth of your skin.
And wouldn't you rather feel me hold you, rather than rake you like Autumn leaves?
With my fingers and with these hands I can pull you towards me much more quickly,
And with much more passion than if I had long fingernails.
With these fingers I can feel your muscles, I can feel your skin,
As I pull your clothing off.

And then the night begins.
