I’d set my sights on you
Long before you knew it
Heck! Long before I knew
I must admit!
It just took time-
Patient, abiding time
Stealthy, secretive time
Time- cyclical, linear
Convergent, or spinning out
It had to bring you in.
For, how long could you hide out
In the nebulous mists, with
The certainty of existence?
That bond, born way before us,
Linking us together, friend or foe,
Had to flush you out
Bring you into heartbeat distance
Into resonating, stirring nearness
The whiff of your being; so fragrant…
I look up, there is no escape!
I’m locked in the cross hairs of your glance
Existence ceases; obliterates, into life, and Love.

Day#7 of #NaPoWriMo 🙂
And at the end of this write, as I tried to close it, while watching that excellent romantic film, “The Lake House”, Kate (in the film, Sandra Bullock) quotes from Jane Austen’s “Persuasion” –
“There could have been no two hearts so open, no tastes so similar, no feelings so in unison”
What a perfect ending 🙂 Not a coincidence!
