Gently his eyes carress mine.. Glancing at me and smiling.. His smile so brilliant and sexy.. The slight preppy/slight thuggish demeanor so appealling, bringing so much sunshine to my soul.. In his arms he gently holds me close to his chest.. his heart.. In and out he breathes.. He raises his hand to my face and gently lovingly strokes my cheeks..wiping the tears away.. He raises my chin towards him with his indexfinger as his soft, pink lips kiss mine.. In my mind, tell him, I want to... in my soul, desire him, I do.. show him how much he means to me, im afraid..but crave and long to do so if my willingness to overcome what the past has brought me, allows the thin line between my lips to widen and the words of a confession is uttered off the tip of my tounge..I would do I try.. The sudden urge to speak on the feelings stirred up in the depth of my spirit is released... Thus shoving the words out of my mouth.. {pause}.. But I studdered.. And as I began to weep because of the inner war I created within my heart..he pressed his finger against my lips and said "Say no more..I love you too!"

The author's comments:
This poem was inspired by a recent moment that took place in my life. It is mearly about how I fell in love with my best friend, not sure how I should react to my feelings, nor how he would respond. As you've read...he noticed the affection I tried so very hard to express, and said "..I love you too!" because he knew that's how I felt.
Thanks so much for reading my poem!
Hope you enjoyed it a lot!
