Eternal

via Daily Prompt: Fragrance In the room that is twilight and shadow, as he stands close enough for me to breathe in his fragrance. His arms wrap around my back and in one gentle pull our skin touches. I feel his hand in my hair, how he loves the softness, watching it tumble as he... Continue Reading →

Amarthine Love

It's true what they say, laughter is infectious. But you know what? I think love is too. But not in the full on laughter kind of way, but in the steady quiet lifetime of dedication kind of way. That's how it is with me and him. It didn't arrive slowly though, it was the clap... Continue Reading →

Please don’t?  

Please don't fall in love with me. Because I'll write poems about your collar bones curve, and the way your eyes flicker when you're upset. I'll look at your trembling lips.
