without words

you are standing on the hill
the sunrise tangled in your hair
all the colors of the earth
raging, viscous against your skin

then gravity let’s us go
slowly easing to the stars

in that moment
lazy, drifting in the sky
you capture me
with a look i can’t recall
something new?

i want to see the world with you”
or, maybe, just walk with me”

all the emotion rises to my skin
oceans behind eyes
a deep breath
and ecstasy
twisted into one

all i’ve ever wanted
is to be the one
you speak to without words
