like an incomplete lullaby
Like a turning head, like a second look
Like a burning leaf of an open book.
Like a pounding sea, like a massive climb,
When your eyes first met with mine.
Like a broken word, like a tragic smile
Like a thousand steps or a single mile.
Like a lonely chance, like a savage glow,
When you turned and said hello...
Like a fleeting thought, like a double life,
Like a gentle feel of a warming taste.
Like a passive breath, like a cooling blow,
When you stopped and held me close.
Inside I nearly froze.
Your touch is almost healing,
You left me feeling,
Tired, I could not close my eyes.
On fire, but frozen inside.
To run or to hide.
Speechless, my words would not melt.
Whispered, I wanted to shout.
Without you I felt,
Like a setting sun, like a lost goodbye.
Like an incomplete lullaby.
