  • There was a time,
    long time ago,
    when I wanted you so badly
    that my teeth ached
    at the sight of you.

    Across a crowded room.
    Really.
    I saw you there.
    Lean and dark.
    Tiger like in your perfect
    moment.

    Stop motioned
    in my mind,
    it is.
    The vision of you
    in your glory.

    Lithe,
    supple,
    powerful.
    Not young, not old.
    In that magical moment
    between.

    We never,
    do we,
    seem to know when we’re in
    that moment.
    Taken for granted,
    oh
    our glory fills us with
    the invincible.

    The notion
    that it would or could
    ever end
    as foreign as Vegemite
    or meteor shards.
