I was awakened with desire
when we accidentally
met on a crowded street
our eyes caressed
each other
you opened your mouth to speak
I reached out a hand
to brush your lovely arm
you averted your eyes
I let my hand drop without the caress
intended
though itís been years
that we were oh so in love
Iím stirred by your presence
I could tell you felt the same way
my life these days
most would consider to be good
I have a new love
Iíve heard that you do too
we have both gone on in a new direction
why then did we hesitate
as we met
just now
I know why
she knows why also
we both felt that love we had
for each other
why then didnít we stop
go somewhere for coffee because . . .
we are still so much in love

You are very astute, Yann, and yes, on second reflection, it is a lot like love at first sight. Thank you.
