Encounter

it’s just that

my heart

has been dozing

and a word

from you

awoke me…

random and welcome

a moment’s interaction

has me thinking,

feeling…

and wondering

what I’m doing here

wandering alone…

for so long.

life is pointless

without love

it’s breath, it’s touch

It’s warming embrace.

i don’t know what will become of me:

ashes, dust…

but while i live

I hope for love

and

another glance

from

you.
