Struck by you

At a party: sober,

stone cold

& alone,

I’m struck

by

you – elfin figure of curls

& deep eyes. Enticing grin

that – & I’m struck secondly

by the grace & calm sense

of space, effortlessly maintained

whilst throwing out a welcome

invitation to dance.

 

I long for the precision

of a single word to pin a name on the jolt

in my veins as I inhale

& this body say Hel-lo

to yours

& I’m struck again.

  1. Oh this is gorgeous – that first electric meeting. “I long for the precision of a single word to pin a name on the jolt”.
