There is something quiet and private that passes
in the moment when your eyes meet.
There is something silent and secret that lingers
after an unspoken word is expressed.
There is something electric that moves through you
as a gasp escapes your lips.
There is something unsaid that shakes you
as the vision becomes clear in your mind.
There is a feeling that you can’t explain
as the distance between you dissolves.
There is a beating heart and the pounding pulse
at the simple thought of a touch.
There is a heat on the surface of your skin
and you are reckless and without reason.
An overflow of restrained emotion
reveals itself in your shaking hands.
In a blush and the warm flow of blood to your face
you try not to be exposed.
With confusion and anguish of the sweetest kind
you struggle to regain composure.
The heat and the dampening of your brow
warns you may not be in control.
A momentary hesitation of fear
and you begin to succumb…
then there is a quiver…
and there is nothing that you can do.
