Whispers on Butterfly Wings

When your words reach my ear
They are whispers on butterfly wings
So I listen more intently
I don’t want to miss a single syllable
Of the story of your life

Exciting, suspenseful, and at times
Downright horrific

I can feel you in every sentence
The force of your words increases
As you continue on it feels like
You are getting steadily closer

Soon, as I had hoped,
You are standing before me
Right in my face you yell
“The End”

I lean into you and whisper,
“This is only the beginning…”
Then I kiss you
Then you kiss me back
