Within the Silence

by Michael P. Rodriguez

Slowly we drift towards one another and the 
lighting in my eyes reveal a thousand love stories full of my desire and 
your reply is silence 
but even within your silence 
shy sensual glances hold me in anticipation but 
ultimately only reveal hints of what could be,
the genesis of a smile catches me,
I pause as graceful, fluid movements etch your presence into my mind
and I hungry with emotion,
stretch an invisible arm towards you
that dissipates within the wall of your silence
