In Search of Chaos

When we first met

I thought I knew you…

The light in your eyes,

The depth of your soul

Were so familiar to me

When you first spoke,

I thought I heard you

Somewhere before

In the darkness of my dreams

I called out


Wanting to hear you

See you

To read you

A long forgotten sonnet

I wanted to drink your words

Like bittersweet wine

To savor the taste

Of your heart…flesh…soul

But you were hidden


On a shelf


Silently hoping

To be rediscovered

The day I found you

I was no longer brave

And suddenly


To turn your pages.
