Love Poem from one of my short stories

I could lie awake all night,

Counting the little freckles that grace your flesh,

Whispering tender kisses along your spine

And feeling my heart skip a beat each time I feel you shiver

Beneath my touch.

I would walk beyond the ends of all the ages and expanses

of this good earth

To feel the gentle press of your full lips against my own.

To look into your cornflower eyes and see them

Sparkling and laughing and dancing and full of life and love and laughter.

I would suffer a thousand torments without thought or regret

for the pleasure of being cradled against you,

with your arms around me, my head rested against your chest,

The sound of your heartbeat loud, and strong, and steady in my ears.
