What I Love

I love us in our quiet moments, the careful sounds of breath filling the air.

I love twining my fingers with yours as we lay talking, it seems, for hours.

I love the look in your eyes, not quite brown but not quite green, as you look at me, as you kiss me, as you want me.

I love your total focus as you worship my body with yours.

I love hovering over that deep abyss, then crashing into it.

I love our connection – from the start it was like this – similar dreams, but different backgrounds, both needing so much to be loved – and we’ve found that.


I love the way you love with your whole body, with your whole soul.

I love the flutter I get in my chest when I first see you.

I love the way you pull me close just to reacquaint yourself with me; I feel so at peace.

I love the way you can make me laugh, even when I’m feeling sad, discouraged or angry.

I love your brilliance, the plethora of ideas that flow out of you.

I love your insecurities too.

I love you even when you tease.

I love your nonjudgmental eyes, your wonderful smile.

I love your strength and your quick wit.

But, most of all, I love your heart, for that is where I feel safe. That I can always trust.

  1. Beautifully written Marie..Your feelings come through with every word..

    Never stop telling each other how much you mean to one another.
    Always say you’re sorry when you have an off day.
    And always keep the sex exciting.
