Friend

Amidst the daily rush,
I found you.
Sitting quiet in the room
With your plaits and your smile.

The words tumbled all around,
And i seemed to have lost language.
My eyes turned furtive
Locking gazes and wrenching away at the same time.

I found something and lost something
and I have no words yet, to describe what they were.

There was a fall and then I gathered myself,
Slowly and steadily over the years,
As realizations set in,
As time kidnapped me.

Physics set in,
Distances and time and all kinds of parameters.
But the souls aren't governed by the same rules,
And so we managed to share the same space.

You were there and you are here.
The star light years away.
The star I can see with my naked eye.


The love stayed, warping over time
Into a memory and a bond.
