Then, tired, hungry, hunting eyes meet. (May 2017)
Out there, somewhere,
There is Someone looking
Just as hard for You,
As you are for Them.
The Find, a simple change, a trifle.
The world doesn't shake,
And crack open at it's seams.
Nor do fiery stars in the sky align.
But it feels very much like vertigo,
The push and pull, the come and go,
Whitewash in a salty wave wipeout,
Like a whirlpool whirl, or a tornado,
Because that errant eyes meeting glance,
Redirects your entire life.
The tiny change,
That changes everything,
Your body knows, feels that shift,
In inner ear vertigo swirls,
It was a big step, one
Of one million
On an untread road,
Hand in hand
With Someone new.
So, one eternal, years long minute,
You're floating in blue loneliness
Under a vantablack sky,
Flecked with bright diamonds
(Then the blue-white shuffle,
The always ever dizzying shuffle),
And the next You are washed up
On a Sandy shore, white sunlight
Licking Your smiling face, blue water
Splashing Your feet, and one hand
Is holding Your overflowing heart,
In Your chest, and the other
Is tangled with Another's.
In truth, it's all a lot less dramatic.
It all starts with a glance (a step),
Then (a step) you'll chat a bit.
It’s something so infinitesimally subtle,
But you'll know it when you see it.
