Against The Dazzling Sunset

Against The Dazzling Sunset

written by: Michelle Ayon Navajas

 

I have never seen you look so good
than that afternoon
framed by the doorway
against the dazzling sunset
your eyes smiled
they longed to speak of a thousand more
unspoken words, unspoken thoughts
unspoken feelings and unspoken dreams

I have never seen you look so good
than that afternoon
framed by the doorway
against the dazzling sunset
you whispered in my ear
the things I’ve been waiting to hear
oh, how my heart fluttered
quickly, lightly yet steadily
in great anticipation

I have never seen you look so good
than that afternoon
framed by the doorway
against the dazzling sunset
you held my hand, for the first time
it felt like forever, my body shivered,
quivered, as you slowly
gently, with a loving gaze
looked me in the eye

I have never seen you look so good
than that afternoon
framed by the doorway
against the dazzling sunset
you moved your body closer to mine
I froze for a second
my heart stopped beating for a moment
then you kissed me
fervently, passionately

– my most cherished memory of you
and of how we all started …
