the lamest poem I have ever written, but it doesn’t rhyme…and after writing it I got an essay back with an amazing mark…one I thought I would do terribly on…I got 90%…an A+…can you believe it? Anywho, the poem, it has deep meaning to me, and I wish that everyone could be this happy in life…as Megan says: “Don’t frown, cause you never know who could be falling in love with your smile…”
YoursSmiling lightly I turn to you,
trying to show you everything through my eyes,
they shine like the sun,
newly risen in the morning,
a morning where your body lies next to mine.
Your eyes are closed,
I touch your cheek softly,
and there is a warmth that spreads from your cheek
to my fingers, and it overwhelms me.
Something in your dreaming breath,
draws me down to listen closely,
to the beating of the heart I know I hold,
the heart that fills my every hollow with love,
so whole and true.
I pause when your breathing changes,
and slowly raise my eyes to yours,
and I drown in the simple beauty of them,
your face is a mirror of mine,
all giddy from our night together,
and waking up to a warm body.
Your smile is etched with my future,
which I gave you in our first kiss,
and your eyes hold everything I am.
You tighten your grip around me and say, “Mine!”,
while it may seem so generically male,
you say it in a way so loving and kind,
so I kiss you gently, look into your eyes,
place your hand on my heart and say, “Yours!”
Then you kiss me, take my hand,
and place it on your chest, but instead you reply,
“this was always yours, and always will be!”
