Cameras flash

As crowds jostle about us

Sweaty bodies irritated

As they pass us by

My hand in yours

Your eyes staring into mine

Surrounded by the moving mass

I feel only your embrace

He stares through a lens


A foot to the left

A hand up an inch

Tilt the head back

And smile

While my muscles strain

And my back bends

The leg shakes

As I hold the pose

But my smile never falters

My smile never wavers

My eyes join the grin

That does not need a coach

I could drown in your blue eyes

Lost in the quirkiness of your smile

You gaze down at me,

The tie constricting your throat

Feet bleeding from new boots

But your smile, like mine,

Remains unaffected by the little things.

Surrounded by a mass of moving bodies

We are lost in our embrace.

On June 6th, my fiance and I were lucky enough to have our engagement session captured in photography at Disneyland. It was an experience that I will never forget. This poem (and possibly more to follow) were inspired by this wonderful day!
