Eyes like sparkling diamond seas
Reflecting the light from my stars
Shining beams of admiration
Shine on my cheeks in the dimly lit auditorium of this moment
Feel the warmth of my love
The rhythm of my heartbeats
There is no metaphor mighty enough to describe your touch
No simile as strong as the feeling of your hand in mine.
Hollywood smile with lips like rose petals
The city breeze sends a flash in your eye
The open road and the sense of adventure
The wandering voice of a lark
Smooth and comforting
Reminding me that where you are,
I am home.
Where you are I can breathe
To turn the lights off and feel your skin against mine
Even if I cannot see you
Even if I cannot look in your eyes
Even if the only sound between us is the air from our lungs
I feel safe.
I know there is work to be done
I know that time is always running out
I know that we may not always be here. Together.
But for now
For now, hold me close
Rest your hand on the curvature of my neck
And kiss me
Kiss me with lips like rose petals.
