Catching Love

swimming in your eyes;

never before have I wanted

to graze lips,

open up

share my insides

dance madly

naked

before someone.

 

Instead we sat

intelligently prattling on;

words that floated into nothingness.

 

Then as quickly as it had all began

you hurled water

over the flames of desire that had burnt for you.

Extinguished.
