Untitled Love Poem by Cydnii Jones


i felt the world around me slip away

wrapped up in the warmth of your embrace

judging, knowing eyes no longer

burned holes into my back

i’ve found the pair of eyes i would let

feast themselves upon my soul

i’ve buried my face into the neck

of pure content

i’ve tasted its lips and felt its fingers

intertwine with mine

in you i’ve found a fraction of myself

i didn’t know i had been missing

not until bliss left a kiss at the crown

of my head

and held me tight enough to feel

the reluctance to let me go

don’t ever let me go

relief washed over me as you filled up

the empty pages in me

that had waited so patiently

for a story to be told
