When It Started
Written December 18, 2010
must have been that moment:
barely knew more than each other’s names,
but for some reason standing by that elevator
we stopped our lives for five minutes
to converse so comfortably
to unlock a feeling for you
i never expected to grow.
it must have been that moment,
and it took me some time to realize
that you had replaced any other men
on my mind.
i knew and i know
we’re not a perfect fit—
a little heteronuclear but
my symmetry adapted to let you in,
and within my thoughts you remain.
now my heart is just waiting
for your hand.
