Our minds wistfully feasting on the past.
Alone on a crowded street, we stood.
Minds downcast and eyes clouded.
But between a dozen strange and empty faces my eyes found yours.
A light sparked from your skin and ignited my own.
Aquatinted we were at an awkward stage.
But I embraced you as one starved of human connection.
And you gave yourself wholly to the fire now kindled within our hearts.
