When I opened the door

the air fell between us.

I felt your hand linger,

wander to the small of my back.

Hours melted as I buried

my head into your heart,

tucked my skin into your ribs,

my love into your arms

and listened to your heartbeat;

it told me secrets I promised to keep,

told me stories of kings and queens,

of your wildest dreams

as it kept time with hope

hidden in my eyes,

with magic at your fingertips

as they closed over mine,

with the patience of our kiss

surrendering our souls

to long awaited bliss.

    The most beautiful thing you’ve written in a while. It captivates, moves and inspires. Your love isn’t a secret, it is a joy to share and see expressed in such a wonderous firm.
