jewel

your jewel-toned eyes filled with water as i lay by your side,
perhaps for the last time
we intertwined our legs like we intertwined our lives
staring eye to eye
you knew me better than i knew myself
and i think that scared me
you knew what move i was going to make next even before i did
it was as if i lived in an enclosed glass globe
because even i, had no sense of direction
no inner compass pointing to left or right
just a feeling
a feeling,
that’s what brought me to you
i never quite made sense of that feeling
i just went with the flow
you were an erotic mystery and i was consumed by your glow
only now i realize, that glow, was my own
