He Loved Her

He looked at her as if wanting to read
her thoughts. He spoke to her as if hungering to tell her
his.  He listened to her as if craving to feel
her words.  He embraced her as if to wanting to hold
her secrets. He kissed her as if yearning to touch
her heart.  He tasted her
as if trying to memorize her sweetness.
He touched her as if desiring to make her his. 
He loved her as if dying to awaken her soul.

  1. Oh, Nicole! Lovely! I like the structure. It would work for the homosyntaxism prompt, as well.
