when i think of you

delightful beyond measure, curiosity fills my heart

you carry a disposition of dedication, reminding me of a loving caress

gently calling within the contrast of my unsteady hand


your words are framed elegantly, calling upon such elegant repose

only you and you alone could lighten my heart's shadow


the beauty of your hands not being measured by expression, but by the feelings which they evoke within

laying upon soft pillows daydreaming about you, surrendering to their imagery after each line


such an exhilarating pace, from somber to passionate -  the breath from your words sustains this feeling

rebounding upon the undulations within the chords of my heart, inspiring a new spirit within


wrapped within the blanket of that effect, my lips grow silent...

from my heart, you are... you will... you will always...

tug ever so gently upon that yearning within my heart

like the mist from a fall, you gently press with your lips

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
