I saw you once.
Curious, I stared.
I could only gaze
Blankly.

A year passed . . .

I heard a friend talk about you.
Again I was curious.
There you were:
You passed through my eyes like a sigh

You knew
The turbulence I was hiding.
Saw through the silent wall
That hid longings so terrible

You saw them all-
All my mixed
And torrents of feelings over you.
