Never felt the breeze splinter bare
Like I did in the moment that
I first saw you.
Rocking across oxygen, your
Smile deep, shy, bursting
To escape the hell you’d
Already been through.
Your eyes–sad and happy and
Hopeful–melting my mind,
Giving me hope too.
But, it was the soft graze of your hand
Across mine that made me
Know that loving you is
The only thing I ever wanted to
