I had been cruising
Through life
Locked in automatic
Mesmerized by
Inconsequential circumstances
And the effort it took
Just to get by.
I hardly even noticed
How flat and tasteless
My world had become.
Somehow the magnetism
The normally draws
Opposites together
Had vanished.
I was ready for a change
Just hoping for
Something to happen
When she popped in.
I don't know where
She had been hiding,
But the moment
She entered my life,
My world began to spin
Just a little bit faster.
I checked her out
From head to toe
In a heartbeat
And liked what I saw.
It was as if
I suddenly awakened
And came out of the trance
That I had been in.
My mind flipped into gear
The moment she appeared,
Alert to possibilities,
Imagining all sorts of things
Contemplating her every move.
It was her eyes
That did me in
As I gazed
Into their fathomless depths,
And took in
The essence of her soul.
I sensed a playfulness there,
A peaceful spirit
Fully engaged in life.
In that instant I knew
All I needed to know,
All that was important
Except for her name,
And that would come later.
