“Dark Eyes & Bated Breath”
I walk through the house stopping every clock
So the hands of time would be still
For I wish to capture this moment for eternity
And bring it back to me at will.
Her form and face etched upon my eyes
The taste of her skin to linger on
The melting kiss from her sweet soft lips
Her voice holding me within her song.
I never thought there would be such a love
I could know beyond imagined prose
That I would attempt to stop the time
And freeze it before she goes
To savor her frame where it lies
Wrapped up with mine like this
To drink her lips like morning dew
Or perhaps an evening kiss
While angels sing to lost lonely lovers
I will lose myself in her depths
Forevermore to be held in thrall
In dark eyes and bated breath.
