Before Me - Poem by Eila Mahima Jaipaul

there you are
before me
an intoxicating smile
blue eyes shining
I could not say anything
not a word
you are so beautiful
I just want to look at you
wondrous and alive with passion
you smell crisp
like outdoors and linen and rain
I want to laugh, giddy
I want to kiss you, desired
I want to pull all the smell of you
into me
