Attempt to write an account of an indescribable connection.
I don’t want to tell you that I love you.
Those words seem empty compared to what I feel.
I have loved before, in many ways.
Until my heart broke, until my soul seemed to shatter,
So much that I believed I reached
The height of all happiness,
So much that no amount of tears
Could hope to drown my sorrows.
I thought a few times that I had found the one
That fit the missing puzzle piece of my heart,
But they were only poorly reflected copies,
Always leaving a gap for misery and discontent to enter.
You came into my life like a quiet storm,
Disrupting all of my thoughts,
Stealing my heart’s attentions,
Making it impossible to focus on anything but you.
When we kissed, it eclipsed everything I ever knew.
Volumes worth of experience and musings on love
Were lost in less than the blink of an eye,
Replaced by a single book with clean pages,
Being dictated by you and written in my heart’s blood.
