When I saw you
That first moment
Everything else stopped
A hush fell upon my restless mind and thoughts
A busy place full of people
And I was another one of them,
Until you turned and looked at me
Suddenly everything else went
Dark like the night
And you were the only point of light in the universe
Except for me
I was light Too.
Breathing at peace and seeing something, someone otherworldly
I touched you for a brief moment
And a deep feeling stirred within me
An intense passion to explore every imagining and idea that I had ever envisioned...
A feeling that had only tickled and teased at my senses
From time to time before that moment
Came to life that night
And it hasn't rested since.
Poems I've written over the course of my life and recently.
