Just one look
and I was alive;
she took me with her eyes.
And I saw the space
between us fade
until we knew our intent.

It’s strange, because
so many days
I fought for love
to bitter ends.
Life can find
the simplest ways
to make one reassess.

I was no longer shy.
I had no will to look away.
Her energy flowed to my soul
and gave me more to say.
I’d have took her hand
if we were allowed
and not left it at a gaze.
But life can make you reassess
in such a simple way.
