La Lingua Franca

When I look into your eyes,
I see how enormous the world is---
All words are lost to me...
My eyes are flooded
And my heart fills
With undying rapture.
We create our own language
Where kisses replace vowels
And soft caresses become consonants
And all mortal worries cease to exist.

Questions, Rants, Raves? Here is the place you wanna go.
