I didn’t know a glance could slam my face
I expected a glance to be more subtle
But instead dread or passion resonates
And in your piercing gaze I feel both empowered and belittled
I didn’t know a word could mean so much
I never was one to nit-pick and to quibble
Until your spoken hello crashed upon my face
It changed my days.
And unexpectedly I for once felt real
You have a way.
A way of making grown men beg and robots blush
A way of making fear become a companion to your love
And I never knew that love could be so vulnerable
I never realized that a glance and word could end and start my days until today
