The look

He gave me a look
I’ll never forget.

It was the kind of display
that takes your breath away,
rendering one giddy
from the thrill of it.

It was the sort of look
that leaves you dancing
on a euphoric cloud,
intoxicated by the soothing
waves of wonder
sweeping over your soul.

And I’ll never forget
that sweet moment of bliss
when his gorgeous gaze
wrapped around my own.

Because that’s when I knew
that he really did love me,
and I know for certain
he still does.

Among the wildflowers

Capture

Among the wildflowers
I laid my heart bare
Speaking to myself
But imagining you there

Your eyes stared back
Hungry with need
As I spilled the words
My heart ached to bleed

You felt the fire
Underneath my dress
As I searched for heartstrings
Embedded on my chest

You fueled my flame
With your incessant desire
And I couldn’t hold back
From what you’d inspired

I gave myself over
To your smoldering touch
Pulling you closer
Wanting you so much

With my eyes closed tight
I uttered your name
On the edge of bliss
You were now mine to claim

I took all you offered
Begging for more
Freeing my desire
Like never before

And in breathless euphoria
My body laid bare
Hidden by wildflowers
Yet you were still there
