Poem – Accidently crossed

As quickly as our eyes

Accidently crossed

I look away

I gather my stuff

And stand to leave

I cannot stay

To avoid any chance

Of having you speak

The mere thought of it

Makes me feel nauseous and weak

Would it be just a couple

Of hi’s left lying on the table

If I knew for sure

Of this I would be able

But anything more

Would be risking too much

Sparks could lead

To a fire

Deathly afraid of your touch

Or of anyone’s

After having traveled the road

On which I have come

You watch as I quickly

Brush pass

Soon to be forgotten

Am I and the momentary connection

A blurred vision cannot last

Disaster is averted

  1. Flow is set so well, as usual with you, the hesitation of repeating the past…it touches in your expression. Hope you are well sweet brother, my best ~ Rose

  2. The fear of a connection is haunting. I’ve built walls in the past and tried to love less but now I realize that being vulnerable is what life is all about. Your poem is beautiful and well written.
