your ever loving midst
by Jeff Flesch
[author’s site]

eyes,
shining bright,
just like the stars
on the clearest night

when you
first
came into
view,
I began
to retreat,
and you
bid me adieu

for a moment…

holding
hands together
that first time, was
something
extraordinarily
sublime

reflection
can give way
to temptation
of the rarest kind,
so it’s our job
to stay
balanced in mind,
and allow
our hearts to shine

forth,

bearing gifts
that become staples
of a tryst,
we may call upon
in your ever loving midst
