What words to describe a person,
do you use words of love, or hate?
Words that distinguish one or standardise them?
I use these words describe you and our story.
Hum, the steady sound of your voice and being
that prevents me from being alone.
Hunger, that I crave
the only substance I need to keep me alive.
Grin, the smile thats grows
when I'm around you and disappears when we are apart.
Greeting, from saying hello
to good morning when we wake entwined.
Imprint, that stamp you leave
leaving your smell on the pillows long after you've gone.
Impetuous, those impromptu trips out
beaches, road trips, kisses, that show your love.
Frame, the moments we want to pause
treasure for ever in frames yet time ticks on.
Foul, for the bad days and moods we have
natural and made us stronger, for good and bad.
Apertural, the opening of our hearts
that lets in the light of us, love, hope of a future.
Absent, when sitting with friends or at work
I’m not there, I’m still in the morning in my head with you.
These words mean different things to people,
average words in dictionaries, but for us
these words have different meanings with more substance
a dictionary of us.
