Last night was the time
I saw your eyes twinkle
like when rain droplets
refract the LED lights
I believed could mimic the stars.
The smile on your face as I slowly
held your hand was like a shot of
ecstasy- a feeling that made me as limp
as the spaghetti we shared together
underneath the incandescent glow of candlelight.
Amongst the whispers of the embers,
underneath the protection of your satin sheets,
let’s learn of each other’s dreams and aspirations.
With permission and your benediction,
I’ll caress you as my inception appears in your eyes.
Only through learning what peaks your mind
will I be able to show you that love
is what truly invented intimacy and passion
as we proceed to engage in acts that
are better left to be said through actions.
baby I know it’s just the first night,
and love takes time to develop.
but I wanna move us up on the grading scale
from flirting to dating to cuddling to bathing to absolutely amazing.
I want to build something that’s meant to last so we may know that happiness is always within each other’s grasp.
