Safe and sound
Save our souls
Desire runs through my veins
Coffee flows in yours
Shared glances and downcast smiles, Fill,
heads swimming with caffeine, and,
nights and the space in between
- filled with people -
Brown eyes return my gaze, unabashed.
My eyes run
Tracing the lines of your body
Like patterns in the stars,
And music in their light,
in your eyes,
Into your voice..
(Where was I...?)
Proximity lights stars afire,
As gravity pulls them together
(And how could it be different with people)
Your lips rise into a smile
My heart beats faster
With a smile mirroring your own
A flash of white brings me back to myself
And the air warms with your laughter.
