A (Surprise) Encounter

Meeting someone is a funny thing

since you never knew of him

before you stepped foot

in his life.

And then, in moments, you know

that you want his breath

to match yours.

And in moments you know

that you want his hand

touching yours.

And in moments you know.

Meeting someone is a funny thing

because you’ve never even

heard of him

until that moment he met your eyes.

And even then,

zyou haven’t heard of him

because even then

he is a whisper in the world

that has brimmed

beneath your toes

all the fuss and fury

in that story,

take a short pause.

Because, then, you see only him.

And in a moment you know

there’s simply no place to go

but to linger in the space

that we live in .
