Hair so dark
when it hangs down it leaves a canopy,
and I swear to God I see stars in it….
Eyes so dark
they somehow catch and reflect light within,
and I swear to God there’s peace within them
So dark, but her smile, it brightens the world
and the skin has an amber tone
smooth to the touch
laughter that brings tingles to my own
sometimes just short of too much.
she gives of herself
and she gives herself to me
I see and feel this beauty
I wish I could make her see
That I know what indescribable means now.
crushed up paper balls, and pens without ink
trying to show her how I see her
til there’s no more words that I can think…..
So the deep breaths I take
when she moves just a little bit
when her foot touches mine
when fingernails dance
on my wrist, where her name is borne,
when her eyes roll to the right
when her smile brings the room to light
the deep breaths I take
will have to be words enough
“The best picture ever taken of the most glorious sunset ever seen
doesn’t hold a candle to you…..” Rob Will, August 2011…..
