A love poem III

It’s how she walks – elbows tucked, arms out Ever so slightly, lacking the obviousness that would be odd, Her legs sweep over the ground, barely touching, In gentle caress, as though they were her fingers upon my cheek.   It’s how she blinks – the small of her eyelids Tugging at the bulge to bow … More A love poem III
