Her eyes seize the moment
as her fingers intertwine his
both laying in bliss at the peace they’ve found
her world rests in the safety of his shoulder
between their joined hands and his lips on her forehead

her other hand calmly rests on her collarbone,
brushing his side like a feather about to fall
the corners of her mouth reach towards his chin
as time thaws into a single heartbeat
bodies braided together in mutual surrender

his necklace doesn’t hold her ring yet
she’ll slip it in his pocket without him knowing that morning
his defined body softens next to her gentleness
under her touch, even his skin turns to silk
craving more of her in the quietness of the room
until stillness finds them again
