I was alone in my thoughts

Then you came to me

A hushed essence followed you

Looking up caught us in an uneasy moment

 

True eyes desire the thread of recognition

We both possess this

Before love unearths it

Before words are spoken

 

An arm around your waist

A seamless fitting together

Forgoes the need for language

As angst secretly adds to love

 

A novel encounter

Desire feeds one or the other

If only love could overcome doubts

As two souls

Move silently into separate spaces

 

 

I found this poem was written in a card, dated 9/21/2017. It was not addressed to anyone and I am not sure to whom it was composed. On 12/11/2019 I altered it more than slightly. The poem above is the revised version and below is the original found in the card.

 

9/21/2017

 

I was alone in my thoughts

Then you came to me

A hushed essence followed you

Looking up caught us

in an uneasy moment

True eyes desire a

thread of recognition

That we each possess

Love unearths it

Before words are spoken

A seamless arm around your waist

A fitting together forgoes

a proper language

And adds angst and love

to a novel encounter

Love feeds on one or the other

Until love overcomes doubts

And two souls can sit calmly

in the space of silence
