Love, Or Something More


Trance

Perhaps it was not love.
Is that why you never saw the way
my eyes trailed, entranced, in your wake,
like wispy clouds drifting across an azure sky.

Is that why you never heard
my heart beat louder
than the thunder crashing through the sky
when you were near.

Is that why you never noticed
the breathlessness of a hot, still summer’s day
in my voice when I dared
to speak to you.

Perhaps it was not love.
Perhaps it was more.
But whatever it was, still is.
