With You

I know every line
every furrow
every single indentation
in your perfect, tanned face.

The strong outline
of your nose
angled and arched
when on profile,

your high cheekbones
in symmetry with your ears
becoming even higher
when you smile
your killer smile;

showing your devilish teeth
in little rows
kept safe by your lips
your soft, sensuous lips,
slightly curling over each other
they’re just begging
to be stroked. . .

Your hair
shining with all the colours
of the night;
not quite hiding your matching
well defined eyebrows
as they slant
nearly meeting in the middle
framing your eyes,
your gorgeous
heart-stopping eyes….

Twinkling the deepest, nutty brown
there ever could be,
as rich as freshly watered soil
as creamy as home-made hot chocolate,
with swirls of caramel
and a pitter patter of crow’s feet
which erupt when you laugh.

Warm, gently, inviting
the same hazel as your skin,
a dark, glowing haze,
Sparkling, dazzling, dancing,
as if they’re on fire
Flames twinkling, burning
and melting,
melting me. . .

I only have to look
one glance is all it takes
and I’m lost,
lost with no possible
hope of return,

but if I could choose
somewhere to remain forever
then there’s no other place imaginable
I would wish to be,
nowhere in the world
I’d feel safer,
no where else I know
I’d feel so alive,

life is nothing without you,
life is everything
with you.
