in the arms of a lover

she is shorter than he is
but just enough that her head rests perfectly on his shoulder
she is comfortable

today was not a good day
her car wouldn’t start
she lost a paycheck
her mother judged silently
with disapproval plastered onto her face

but that doesn’t matter right now
because his hands are on her waist
and her hands are on his hips
and she is dancing and she is breathing and she is smiling
for the first time today

he holds her close like she is the only thing that matters
because right now she is all that matters
and she looks at him like he is the sun
peeking out for the first time since the storm moved in that morning
and time is slowing time has stopped
she can’t help but cherish this

the funny thing about love is
that it never needs to take the form of extravagant romantic gestures
because it’s intimate moments like these that matter the most
confirming what neither of them need to speak

they mean the world to her
