First Glance


It only took one frozen second containing the vision of your likeness

Setting my heart in flutter

A bird trying to fly in this rib cage

My mind spins

In this dizzy stasis

Drawing up impossible scenerios

Creating a fated path to where we could meet

As if I did not know already that you are forbidden

Or that you have anything to gain from a sexual vampire

At the mercy of your sleek beauty

A kind of love would enrapture my being allowing me to swim through time

How easily you could coarse my complete devotion

How us men hold such a regard for sight

The lord of all senses

I sink back into my pool of shadows


Knowing we will never exchange a single word
