Poetry: Maybe It’s Because

By Monica C. Voskamp

He could taste the salty ocean

As the droplets hit his face,

He laughed as he watched her

Shake loose her golden locks

Of ocean wet.

The sun was hot and shone

Fierce rays of mid afternoon

Yet nothing glowed more

Than the sparkle of blue

Eyes upon him.

“You know you make me

Smile so good,” he murmured

As he pulled her body close.

The cool damp of her was

Refreshing as it touched the

Dry heat of his skin.

I know I do,” she answered

With a coy look and smile.

“And you know what else

 I know about you?”

She teased him twirling her

Fingers in his hair.

Waiting till their eyes locked,

She whispered, “I know

No matter how macho man you be

You simply melt every time

You are around me

Every single time.

What he said in return

Grabbed hold of her heart

And kissed the very centre

Of her hungry aching soul,

Well maybe, it’s because,

I’m in love with you. ”

And that day under the sun

Marked the moment her heart

Was forever won.
