“The Patterns in your Eyes” – Poem

By

Twist the velvet

Wrapped around your curving shoulders.

And breathe me a kiss

That is laced in the wine from our evening.

Your eyes hold a subtle

Hint of what I’ve come to notice

About you.

Just the fevered rays of a sun that I’ve been lacking.

Just the warmth of something meant to be staying.

Rather than run,

I will drown, in the sun and its heat.
