A piece of prose on the body language of attraction.
Simple looks become a gaze,
eyes locked, held , just that a bit longer,
then sudden glances away when sense
briefly prevails, only to seek again
dilated pupil rush.
Head tilted on shoulder to rest,
porcelain neck, vulnerability, elegance exposed.
Movements made are mirrored.
Foot point arrow like, straight to the heart.
Finger touches mouth as hands adjust
cuff and collar. Gold cross held between
lips, sudden laughter, a hug fractions longer
and slightly tighter.
Brows drag eyelids extra wide,
a code to clarify,
then goodbye thoughts of yes or no.
