what is that spark that first ignites?
the sudden click of a smile across the internet site
…the recognition…the someone other…finds you…
of all the billion people on the planet…you…it must be true
that one smiling click found you…and the intensity builds…
you find yourself stumbling steep into the love guild
crafting your every word…longing to be heard
your heart skips at every sound of the computer screen
you drop EVERYTHING you are doing to reach love pristine
the cell phone beeps and a text is waiting for your word
of course you will respond, you silly bird
you plan your day around the love you seek
clean the closet…wait for the sound…don’t go too far
or out of bounds…do the dishes…don’t wander to the stars
however, you still WONDER…and get carried away
you let reality slip…and your senses do stray
you have never had eye meets eye
you have never heard the person’s sigh
or…the slight brush of the hand against yours…
but you are convinced that she is yours for sure!
she tells you, “No”…but you do not hear it still
your brain runs past it and your heart does what it will
you are so convinced and determined to try
even if it never happens you will not let your love die
why are you so persistent, what is it that you refuse to hear?
why do you not hear the insistence, what is it that you seem to fear?
