beauty truth love

all but imperceptible
with eyes closed

ears plugged

heart tied up in knots

that’s why when Anne walks into the room
smiles at me with sheepish grin

eternal eyes crinkling cute

I focus on her glow her laughter her kiss
I am greedy wanting to take in her essence
my hand reaching out to touch her face

a blissful sigh escapes me

listening to her voice her words her song
I receive her as I give in

to love truth beauty
