Love is

Something about
the air tonight.

Some thing, some stir
in my soul tonight.

A quiver, a shiver,
a pressure point in my heart -

to be beside you,
beneath the sky,

to breathe the same air
and feel our love

mingle in the earth and breeze

and clouds shaped like trees
and galloping horses,

your hands about my shoulders,

the taste of chocolate
and chili on my tongue,

Something sweet,
something deep
in the air tonight -

the way we let go of all but us;
the clouds

and the warmth in our hearts.
