To Know You

Looking in from afar

How did you even come to be?

Our paths have crossed

But my fingers only graze your shadow

You’ve captured me

Carved yourself in my mind

Simply by existing

To know you

To be in the presence one

            So purposed

So driven

            So clear

Technicolor spectre in a black and white world

A talent that freezes me

I see it all, you show it all

One word

One look

All I ask for is a beginning

No promise of tomorrow

An open door would suffice

A cracked window would be enough

I’m at the end of my rope but I’m going down swinging.
