Papers and Silence

When you crept into my thoughts
I had no choice but to fall, hard,
deep into dreams of shivering stars
and the expanse lit by the eyes.

I awoke to a gasp and a name
softly resting on unready lips,
hiding and camouflaged in a room
stacked high with papers and silence.

Love is such sweet poison, such
beautiful waters in which to drown;
here I stand on the shore,
hesitant vial in hand, and endless fear.

You came into my life like the waves,
and I, nervous, never more than
dipped my toes, into the sea,
into the possibility, into the heart.


So, what do you think?
