Glimpses of Now

He creeps into my thoughts
whenever he pleases

My day goes by
much as before and yet
in he comes and
there he is
his face before my eyes

An overlay of the mundane

And then I’m wondering
what he’s doing in that moment
where his thoughts are
if he ever thinks of me and
smiles without realizing it

I know I don’t bring anything
tangible to Us and yet
still I hope
to bring some light into his eyes
a smile to his lips

I want to invade his thoughts as
he invades mine

I want to be important to him
I want him to want me

A part of me desires for him to
sigh with longing and
lose track of time
while I dance through his mind
much as I sigh for him

A piece of me wants him to
walk away without turning back
nor a second glance

A part of me wants to
become so entwined in his soul that
he could never let me go

A piece of me wants to
release him to fly free
without the burden of me
clinging to his feet
dragging him down
along with me in my mud

Yet I feel so alive because of him
because of his presence in my life

I feel cared for
if even for but a fleeting moment

Yes, I carry on much as before
but now I have….
what do I have?

I don’t have him not really

No, but now I have a
small piece of hope

Now I have a
fragment of peace

Now I have a
glimpse of love

  1. Reminds me of a London Grammar song .. the way he never leaves your thoughts. I can relate to this intensity. Good job. Have you read that book about Alaska by Kristen Hannah? I just finished it and I thought it was brilliant.
