Who doesn’t have a crush on SVE?  Nobody.

 

Much More Than That

Please don’t take me lightly.
I mean every word.
Whichever way you’d like to place them.

One day I’ll be a better writer.
I’ll make every face
That I’ll never perfectly phrase.

You reached for my hand slowly.
I didn’t pull away.
We did not have to be lips to face.

My toe hit your toe lightly.
Your toe met my heel right back
And I don’t think I need much more than that.

You look at me so slyly
But only when I’m smiling.
Every other time your head looks down.

I sigh and then I frown.
I write this moment down,
‘Cause I cannot paint pictures with my tongue.
