The edge of your face in the honey light bleeds
Into sable shadow, your expression unresolved
Though the purr in your humming, a melody
I don’t recognize as a song, tells me all I need
Is less than a breath away and if I can circle
You with my arms, shift you to be mine more
Completely without inhibiting your throaty
Aria, then I will have finally become a genius
