How a person can cause so much change.

One look
Photo by Maximalfocus on Unsplash

A look from you

and my world is renewed.

A jolt of electricity

creates a spasm

in my heart.

Hours apart -

You seem like a wraith.

Did I see you?

Did I imagine you?

I hear the sweet sound

of the knight -

He saves the day!

Goosebump trails

across my arms.

Palms faced open -

Facing the heavens.

The pomegranate juice

trickles with blood.

The sacrifice of one soul

to another.

A taste of you -

Sweetens my day.

Crystal sugar at my feet -

Forming clouds -

evaporating when my step

crushes any expectation.

I become nothing.
