It's the way you blink your eyes slowly in my direction that draws me in
It's the mere movement of your eyelashes that tug on my heart strings
trying to fine-tune the perfect melody that sings all the reasons why my chest sinks deeply every time I hear the bass in your voice
our souls nearly break their necks from the melodic vibe session that happens every time we connect with nothing but the sounds of hip-hop
What a lovely evening it always is every time you inch closer to me pulling my body so close to you that I sink into your being
taking my mind to all the different places in time
imagining all of the galaxies that hold the constellation map that tells the story of our love
and every time you disappear from being near me my soul drops tears that sink into the lake of anxiety that used to live underneath bridge that held the road less traveled
the exact road that I had to muster up the courage to step foot on to find my way back to you
a person of the people you are
providing a unique human experience to every life that you touch
the creole seasoning that drips from your tongue every time you speak
brings people together, just like a joint, but there's no weed involved.
You're my midnight snack that touches my soul in more ways than one
and if the only thing I had to ingest for the rest of time were the sounds of your voice and your fluid intellect, I would survive whole heartedly.
your entire existence offers up the food for my many thoughts
that leaves me in a state of satisfaction in such a way that no cuisine could ever fulfill
they say the third time is the charm
but for us, this is our take nine, but baby I'm confident that we got it right this time.
I love you.
