That first time I held your hand, I found recognition and lust. Our fingers, our palms seemed to have meshed, This deep intuition that captivated my spirit. We had danced and toked up, Looked into each other’s eyes, We had not kissed yet. We were waiting For cues from a kismet that lurked. A cosmology that would evince Whatever it was that we were undertaking. This meeting of minds, a fiat of love We would nestle and nurture, then quietly abandon.
