shhh, she whispers
as his dazzling, indescribable
green eyes, oh those eyes,
rake over her blushing face.

why, he wonders
as her graceful fingers
dance over the defined lines
of the feather
tattooed on his forearm.

because, she answers
as his tanned arm
snakes around her
slender waist.

i can't help it, he responds
as her legs uncross delicately
before she pulls them under her
on the leather loveseat.

it's love, she announces
as her eyes shift down
to the floor, shyly
almost as if embarrased,
i just know it is.
