Unspoken Smiles

I gaze at you through half-lidded eyes


and marvel at your presence


your very proximity


 


I’m still surprised to see you when I look up


to see you here with me


to know you’re here because of me


 


suddenly


as if you feel my stare


you turn


and smile


a smile meant for me alone


 


and I smile back


I can’t help but smile back


 


the rest of the world ceases to exist in this moment


in your smile


in your eyes


now there is only me


and only you


 


you stand and walk toward me


leaving your place by the window


leaving that other world behind you


as you reach me you fall into my arms


 


you belong here


have always belonged here


 


gently you press your lips to mine


I can still feel your smile


as I breathe you into me


all of you


 


we become one being as we tangle in the sheets


as we tangle in each other


a mass of arms


legs


hands


teeth crashing into each other


the waves of our lust breaking over each other


 


and then it is calm


and strands of my hair are caught in your hand


the smile back on your lips


mirrored on my own


 


I want this moment to last forever


to withstand time itself


I search your face for hope


for reassurance that this is real


 


instead I see myself


reflected back in your pale green eyes


and I know that I am a part of you


as you are a part of me


 


you brush your fingers across my cheek


whisper, “I love you” in my ear


and as you lightly kiss my eyelids closed


I know that we will survive


our love flowing through eternity


floating on the tides of time
