Everywhere I look, I see shades of you.
Coloring my world.
The sweetness of your smile.
The freedom of your laugh.
The flash of fear in your eyes.
Tremble of your lip.
The quiet stubbornness in your posture.
The darkest of nights is nothing to the depths of your eyes.
Glossy and shimmering
Like moonlight on dark, still waters.
Your joy is the sunshine of my world.
The sweetness of your pain a secret treat
Savored in the shadows.
Like all secret, guilty treats,
Best after midnight.
