VERSE | LONGING

I found an eyelash on your cheek 
It perched there like a dream
I couldn’t take my eyes away
From that hypnotising scene

The beautiful imperfection of
That eyelash out of place
Was also the exquisiteness
Of nature’s untamed grace

You looked at me as I looked at
The fallen angel on your cheek
It fluttered on broken wings like
Back into heaven it would leap

And then you smiled that special smile
Where your eyes light up with mirth
The eyelash took a leap of faith
Becoming one with the pulsing earth

I found an eyelash, it had strayed
Onto your sun warmed skin
It filled my heart with wistfulness
With love and with longing.
