Jeremiah Gilbert


It amazes me
The way your eyes
Open under mine
I have never before
Been allowed to look
So deep within
More amazing still
The tranquility
Found there
I notice you blush
Your timid smile
Pulls me even deeper
Drowning euphoric
In the depths of you
My breath catches
An expanding knot
Within my chest
I try to steady
Hands that tremble
To hold you
Drawn like a moth
To the flame burning
Within your eyes
Closer and closer
Until I am pleasantly
In the fire of your kiss…
