I Like You

My truth shies
In the presence of
Your reality
In search of
Courageous lips
Two separate occasions
Colliding into one
Psychology driven

We are a perennial dance
Between the blades of grass

I like you
But not because
I’m alone at night
Not because
Being with you feels alright
I like who you are
Generally
Your qualities
Are warm

Eloquently precise

When you came to me
Before I really knew you
I liked you
But then I grew
To like you more

I keep my eyes
Casting away
So much to blush about
I say
Although it shifts
As things can be
Forever shaken
Depending on the route
We end up taking

I learn more about you
You share your truth
I suppress the lust
Even as you blink

The women of the park
Swoon all around you
I’m not sure if you care
Their intervals are woven
Like the texture in your hair
Maybe rocking
In a chair
Will calm the tide
But I’m still there

I’ll role you up
Like a burrito in a rug
An unannounced hug
Torment your face
With kisses
Leave you breathless
Laughing listless

My intuition says
There’s not much hope
In letting go of my affections
Even as I might tiptoe
Through weeping trees
My best defense
Is to make sure
That I do not
Offend the crows
