Intoxicated

by your kiss.

You take away my filter,

release the babbled stream of words.

Always words,

flowing out unconsciously.

Connecting you to me

and me to you.

We skip through all the pleasantries

but not the pleasant feelings they bring.

We've done this dance before,

we just didn't know the steps.

Now we're listening to the music,

participating in a lover's tango,

dancing with experience.

Still doubt in our eyes

but we're letting it slip away

a little more each day.
