    ____________________________________________________

    I like that I can talk with you
    & you seem to adore it
    I like that I can tell you…
    …exactly how I feel


    …just like life emulating art
    your conversation kisses me
    deeply/thoroughly/genuinely
    & with each vocal exchange…
    thought processes are
    incessantly rearranged at an
    inordinate rate of 7.7
    scintillating seconds of
    intoxicating verbal satisfaction
    & you listen intently… letting me
    know the feelings are reciprocal…

    I like that you don’t look at me
    that confused kind of way when
    the thoughts are running thru
    my mind & I can’t seem to find
    the right thing to say…


    …feeling thirteen instead of thirty-one
    (that first time) tongue-tied…
    reticent… somehow less than eloquent
    standing in your brilliant presence
    …trying to express how you move me
    instead of… stumbling… fumbling…
    falling in love & tripping over my words
    but… the look in your eyes urged
    “take your time… be clear…
    …cause i’m not going anywhere”

    Oooo… this feels nice
    Our easy conversation
    Oooo… this feels so tight
    Our easy conversation
    Oooo… this feels nice


    you are mastering me… oral-ly

    I really like when you
    speak to me… you never front…
    you always tell me straight up
    Look at how our love light shines
    This friendship is so…
    beautiful… beautiful…
    We don’t have to say a word
    if we don’t want to…


    …companionable silence soothing
    no concerns about there being
    …“nothing left to say”
    no strain to talk about something
    …we can speak on any&everything
    & still maintain our eagerness to
    relax & flow together…
    our synchronization is effortless
    our harmonization is intense &
    it feels so nice… it feels so tight
    the way that we...
    converse so easily.
