and for a moment

Location

 

and for a moment you

pause

slow, steady, listen

the room would be so quiet

if there wasn’t so much blood

rushing

in my ears.

I look at you 

and my soul is in my eyes

you look at me

like you’re hoping I’ll

say it,

finally, aloud.

let me kiss it to you instead.

darling, how

do I love you?

I wish

I could count the ways

 

- I tell you I love you every time we have sex
