We stand there together.

You and me.

Not looking at each other,

not looking around.

With eyes closed we stand there, thinking.

About you.

About me.

With eyes closed,

we stand there.

Wanting,

needing.

With eyes closed,

you reach for my hand.

Your other hand moves to hold my neck.

With eyes closed

you bring your lips down to mine.

Softly asking and saying what neither of us will ask or admit.

My eyes slowly open,

and I see you

Nothing like what I thought you would be.

And with my eyes fully open,

I continue to kiss you

putting all of what neither one of us will ask or admit

into a moment

standing with our eyes open
