A whispered ‘yes’

March 14, 2008

I see you sometimes
In the vaguely familiar glances of a stranger,
Speaking of ties I am only dimly aware of
At a subliminal level…
Shadows interplay
And gazes are uncertain
As is the slow tentative smile
On unknown lips…
The days move seamless,
While we leap,
Moment to defining moment
Until the night
We pause outside my door—
Do we dare?
I am frozen,
A heart scarred once too often…
Make the first move,
I may still have it in me
To whisper a ‘yes’.
