Can This Be Love?


I watch you across the room
Thinking your gorgeous

longing to approach you
touch
feel your skin

notice how your clothes
fit your body
I undress you with my eyes

perfect balance

the way you smile
little gestures you make

makes me blush with desire

I get nervous when our
eyes meet

my candle burns brightly

I long to get acquainted
know you better

when looking at you I see
perfection

everything I have ever wanted
looks back at me
can this be love?

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
