Your Back
For Ryan...

Skin so smooth
I touch your back
And trace the dragons-
Like the dragon within
They stare back as I stroke-
Unfazed by the attention
Unlike you, who sigh and smile
As my touch awakens your soul
And you tilt your green eyes up
To catch my glance with yours
So full of love my heart overflows
Like my eyes are also tempted to do
Your hand touches my cheek
And draws me to your side
So close I can feel the even beat
That I know is your heart
Beating in unison with my own
As we fall asleep, entwined
