Just

Just

Being beside her

And looking

Into her

Eyes,

Staring

At the curl

Of her lips,

Dreaming

About her

Slender neck

And my lips

Pressed against

Her skin,

Makes it hard

For me

To find words

For anything

Other than her

Beauty.

Touching her

Reduces me

To grunts

And snorts,

Reverting

To a prehistory

I never knew

Or experienced-

Before words

Were carved into stone

Or written in mud

With sticks.

She both elevates

Me

And reduces

Me

To my best and my worst,

Just by being

Her.
