tonight i am wishing
on the stars in your eyes
and the eyelash
that has fallen onto your cheek
the one i kiss away

they say you shouldn’t voice your
but my eyes
have always spoken volumes
so i fear the minute
you take my chin in your fingertips
and raise my eyes
to yours
every wish
and desire
will spill out
in run on sentences
without taking a breath
