I Would Know You Anywhere


In all the little things
whether miles from you
in a crowded room
or in my sleep
I would know you anywhere.

I would know you
by your footsteps following a path to me.

the scent of an ancient world
caressed by an exotic sea
that precedes your presence
and lingers long after.

by your lips
and the silent thoughts
that fall from your tongue
to wet the nape of my neck.

Know you, yes
by your voice
hiding inside your words,
a soft rain serenade
for my ears only.

by the imprint of your fingertips
dropping whorls with each touch
marking the way back
so as not to lose your place.

You.
Anywhere.

  9. extremely seductive and romantic! the use of the senses, "your voice hiding inside your words" coupled with the sense of touch from the lips, the tongue, the neck, the fingertips...hearing "footsteps following a path to me..." you covered it all and did it with such powerful poetic justice! beautifully done.
