You and I have seen each other;
this is not the first time and yet –
here it happens, a chance meeting of the eye
and now everything’s different –
it begins the story I wasn’t expecting
we see each other – I hope.
I wasn’t seeking you, I could not
anticipate it would be you,
but this is it. I’m being pulled down
into this exciting darkness of mine/d/.
It streams all day, all night, the controller
is chance, intrusive thoughts trickle
without pause, I don’t breathe,
I did not ask for this, it was not my intention –
The order of life has rolled over,
my day revolves around the times I see
your silhouette approaching, your voice
breaking through – I become alive and dumb,
I can’t wait for the future but I stop time,
– rewind and repeat– I just want another one,
more daily encounters,
smile on smile.
No escape but this warm darkness.
