New Beginnings

by Shani Cruz

In the midst
of newness
despite gossip
You appeared
Onyx eyes
speaking shyly
Quiet words
Smile for me
I wonder how
your lips tell
me secrets 
traced in 
after midnite
Surprise me
I am nervous
yet anxious 
to kiss someone
indigo with my
red sunkiss 
making dawn droplets
as work surrounds us
Curiously connected
chasing time and 
each other
You don't have
to worry bout me
I am sincere in 
telling you honestly
how beautiful you are
and how beautiful
we can be
