“This is How”

Across the Room - Edmund C. Tarbell

this is how we kiss
sometimes soft and tender
often hungry and all-consuming

this is how we glance
furtive and fearless across the room
gentle and guileless at arm’s length

this is how we touch
lingering caresses lengthening time
sharp soft stinging strokes stopping the heart

this is how we love
fully, intensely, without conceit
deep as oceans and skies
