My fingernails dig into the skin on the back of his neck.
His one arm snaked around my waist,
Pulling me closer.
His other hand touching my shoulder, my neck, my face, my hair.
It seemed restless, until settling
On my neck (just under my ear) his thumb
Lightly brushing my cheek.
One of us sighed. I'm not sure who
Though, it doesn't really matter.
I can hear his heart beating…
So loud, so fast, or is it mine?
I really can't tell anymore.
Does it even matter?
I feel him smile, and I take a small peek.
He's looking at me, big hazel eyes,
With some green around the pupil.
I smile back, at that moment there's a knock.
I fix my hat, the doorknob turns.
