hands

when i close my eyes
i can feel you swiftly pull my hand to your body
fingers tangled, hesitantly slow dancing
my shallow breath
goes deeper and mirrors yours
for a moment we are still
but you are searching
the tips of your fingers find my wrist
i turn to prove you’re really there
you choreograph your smile
with the opening of your eyes

you look into me

a playful, what?”
and so many words flood my thoughts
words that fall short
of simply having you by my side
and dreaming of forever
