I Want To Know You

I want to know you –
Your typical morning habits
What you totally hate eating
What you actually mean when
You don’t say a word, or do
Little things that often go
Unnoticed, except when time
Stands still, but time is
Never on our side, so
Before it’s too late
I want to know you.

Cooking

Cooking is dangerous business –
In the process, one must face
The possibilities of being
Sliced by knives, splattered by oil
Even pierced by an unseen bone
Bloodied, blistered, and bruised
Yet we continue, without fear
For it is a miraculous sum of parts
And so is love.

Chanced

He smiled from behind his shades
Raised a brow, cocking his head
Asking if I was coming on;

Alas, he’s not the one I was
Waiting for, so I shook my head and
Waved with a smile bright as day

To which he waved and returned,
A tad wryly, yet a smile nonetheless
Chanced, before we pulled away.

Daily Prompt: Doppelgänger

How eerily comforting to
Meet the one who shares your
Temperaments, emotions
Intensities, peeves and dark sides
A perfect mirror of one self
Familiarly strange, strangely familiar.

Daily Prompt: Skewed

We hold beneath our
Skins, skewed perspectives but
Forget that, sometimes, like
All things in nature, they
Require balance.

Daily Prompt: Bubble

Lending clarity
For a brief, fragile moment
Before bursting from
Existence.

Daily Prompt: Parallel

In a parallel universe
We could be sitting before
Each other, taking in every
Nuance of our connection;
And our souls would meet
On such spiritual planes
That they would flow and
Weave us together again.
