Smitten short poem

Photo by kaybee07

That impish sparkle in your eyes
I lower mine
Feeling oddly shy
The creases on your cheeks
With every smile
Bringing a blush
To mine
Your name
Suddenly a constant
In my words
Savouring its taste
On my lips
Your face
In every face I see
My ears
Craving to hear all I can
About you
My heart
Happy to revel in
The non existent spark of hope
Reading into
Your every word
Looking for
A sign in every smiley face
Devouring feverishly
Anything that is you
For every “what next”
Wishing for a miracle
Awake to reality
Happy to dream
Happiness in
The blush
The sparkle
The warmth
The glow
Happiness in
Being smitten…
