Speaking Softly

Lean in closer,
let your hair fall
around me
as I whisper,
for you alone to hear,
words of affection
like butterfly breath
upon your ear.

Listen closer
to the meaning
I intend,
for mere words
will fail again to
impart the depths
of the love
I feel.

    This is lovely… nice write 🙂

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
