‘Compliment’

by gurdeepmattu

Your hair is as black
As a raven’s dream.
This dark compliment
Thrills you.

It thrills me to make it,
To take it, to shape it, because
                I love you.
I love everything about you.

It thrills me to be this
Thrilled by you.
Your gimlet eyes fix
               Mine, and I know
You feel it too.
