EMBERS

I don’t even know you,

But you woke me up.

You shook me down.

And all I could think was

How I’ve got to know you,

If only for a moment.

In seconds, in silence,

You sent bubbles rising

To the surface of my melting defenses.

Barriers collapsed

Drawbridges snapped

Under the weight of your impression.

You are the reason for people like me

To feel such longing and such desire

You don’t even know me,

But these embers are glowing

And I swear, you’ve just set me on fire.
