Your smile has lit my heart from the inside, more times than I can count.
Your face stirs within me a twinge burrowed within my breast. Innate magic that is enlivened only in your presence.
I stand to your countenance, facing those cool, brilliant eyes and feel the sinking within me.
The falling of my defenses that I know are not within me to halt.
Your lips have always been my weakness, pulling me in, at their own behest.
Pockets of rebellion diminish and slowly exude from my pores.
I long for the floor to fall from beneath my feet, undoing what I have done with the day.
Small but numerous bursts fire within me, begging for permission to submit.
Exercising independent will is fruitless in your way.
I gravitate to you as aviary populations ascend and begin their flight south.
Beckoned by instinct, I have always been called to be by your side.
Nature overwhelms me and I revert to the only reaction that makes sense to me.
To be near you, with you, part of you.
