That Night

All it took was a sideways glance

A few honest words

And that kiss

 

Curled up next to a beating heart –

S-shaped curves

I want to race

 

You’re melting me like snow on the tongue –

Butter in your pan

My hearts on the run

 

Your eyes (the color of water on a right day)

They anchor me

At your side

 

Anticipating the nature of our play

I wait

To feel my way around your night

 

All it took was your gentleness

An avenue to admit

Which way the wind blew

 

That night

All it took was you
