Poem: Enigma

heart love

Why does my heart flutter

at the slightest glimpse of your face?

Why does my pulse race

when I see your sauntering grace?

Why does my breath catch

every time your eyes find mine?

Why are there flutterlings in my belly

when that shirt betrays your waistline?

Why does the world seem to halt

when you look at me and smile?

Why do my arms reach for you

even though they know they will be rebuked?

Why do these lips yearn for thine

when they know it’s wrong, yet so right?
