His skin, like sand dampened by the ocean,
Her tresses were as waves flowing in motion.
His onyx hair blocked the moon’s reflection,
Contrasting that of her bright, fair complexion.
She gently molded her hand with his own,
And he harmonized his footsteps to her tone.
Though she was reticent, he remained steady,
Until she turned to him and said, “I’m ready.”
In dedication to my boyfriend, whom I wrote this for in the first few weeks of our relationship. Over three years now; my love and anchor of steadiness.
