Bittersweet Love Affair

Anytime I need to see your face,
I just close my eyes.
I am taken to a place where your
magnetic eyes endorse a deep commitment.
Here you are my dream, my wish,
my fantasy.
I hang on every word that drips like
wine, from your lips of truth. I lock you
away, away within me. Like stolen pearls
from the heart of the sea.
I will hold you, I will kiss you, here
you will be mine. The loyalty of a
rosebud to a rose, sweet music we
compose. In sync, and never off key,
our hearts smile, our souls shine, soaking
and bathing in a love so divine.
Then I open my eyes,
just to close them.
And fall in love all over again.
