A free-verse poem (only my second ever) with a much lighter theme than what I usually write about. Written October 2011.
I want to hear
the rhythm of your heartbeat
as I press my head
against your chest.
I want to feel
your warm breath on my neck
your sweet lips against mine
your gentle fingers as they trace circles on my skin.
I want to see
your chest as it rises and falls
your smile widening as you pull me closer
your eyes filled with happiness and, equally, bliss.
I want to be
the only one you think about
the one you've always dreamed about
the one you forever love.
