Your Smile. . .

I wish to drink poison today
From your life-giving lips
'Cause nothing gives rest
To a besotted heart
Than words riding on
A beloved’s moist breath.

But you choose silence,
Smile –
Throw in
A riddle or two,
Knotting
This heart in multitudes.

…And I sit here
Untying each knot
Into a poem for you. :-)
