This Desire (For You)

You coalesce
with stunning speed
right in front of me
and I slide backwards
moving away
with the purest caution
guiding my feet

You remain still
with serenity painting every detail
to the smile on your face
(You make a joke
and the cracks in the pavment
laugh heartily)

It's pouring rain
and I have the urge
to kiss you
(to make you mine)
