You Fill Up My Cup

Art of Léa Roche

You fill up my cup–
waterfall cheekbones,
sunrise eyes,
lips an aqueduct.

You fulfill my wishes–
mirrorball reflections,
translucency,
a school of faithful fishes.

The watermark of promise
on your face;
I cling to the driftwood of your brows,
so I don’t sink below the rueful waves.

The underwater cove of your lips,
shelter from the abyss.
You fill up my senses with each
buoyant kiss.

  1. How very beautifully descriptive. Each stanza full of the wonders of love. My favorite lines, which were not easy to pick were:

    “The watermark of promise
    on your face;
    I cling to the driftwood of your brows,”

    So unique and creative. Hope your holidays are restful sending hugs and love. 🦋🤗🌹

    • Joni, Thabj you for this uplifting comment. I cling to these as well in times of self-doubt. I’m so glad you ended this one as it was straight from the heart. 💜😊
