Afternoon Snack

his eyes were like almonds
drawing me into a secret place inside
where only I existed
and nothing else mattered
except us

those eyes that shined
when looking into mine
satisfied an insatiable appetite
from the very first taste
after which nothing else mattered

Oh! I finally realized why so much happiness is almond shaped or flavored! Poetry Jam is getting lots of happy poems in return. Such a fine week. I needed it. And this! Wonderful almond-eye sensuality for me to imagine, an instance of tasting pure and lasting intimacy. Thank you, Laurie!

If that is mutual you can just keep sinking, never thinking, sleep so deep you're never been more awake.
