there's a ring of fire in your eyes that sets me alight, leaving me yearning for the next moment that they meet mine. and your hands roll over the hills on my skin, creating a flat earth beneath your palms, one you tread lightly across like it's new fallen snow. and as the sun from your smile melts it all away, you begin to plant flowers across the newly warmed earth, gently allowing them to find their homes in places of safety. they bloom quickly, creating a trail of lavender & rose to the core of my being. as time passes and the sunshine fades to moonlight they thrive, seeming to glow in the dark, before beginning their unwanted wilt. and as the snow falls again, i will wait for the sun to shine bright the next time your fire eyes meet mine.
