Erophilia

Michael Estabrook

Love of Romance

First Date
Asking her
to go steady with me
on our very first date 50 years ago
is the greatest thing
I’ve ever done in my life

Pure Beauty
Looking up at me holding my hand tightly
telling me “Yes I’ll go steady with you
be your girl if you still want me.”

Time Travel
To go back in time fall in love all over again:
her hair, her walk, her kiss, her scent, her smile –
what could be better than that?

Stunning
Barely able to speak
in her presence: “Can’t believe
I’m standing here talking to you.”
Exactly how I’ve felt
every day of my life.

Silence
When she would fall asleep
her pretty head light upon my shoulder
I’d stay still as a stuffed otter
listening to the silence
all around me
