This blog is intended to allow those, who care to hear about my progress in writing, to see into my life.

This week I have been working on a poem about a moment shared between me and a friend of mine. At the time, I really had strong feelings for this person, and it was a beautifully strange moment. I can’t quite capture the feeling of the moment, and what I really want to do is to illustrate what I experienced.

Eye Contact:

I hadn’t thought you’d be here,

invading the library

halfway through my research paper

you came through the door.

I successfully avoided your glances,

but even pages began to whisper.

My eyes strained for a breath,

and fell upon on your blithe face.

You perceived my gaze from a distance,

returned it.

held it there as ransom;

unable to avert,


A few moments silence,

an effervescent feeling

an illuminating smile.

If eyes are windows to the soul,

you are incandescent.
