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.
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,
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.
