I found

What I wasn’t looking for

And in its finding

I unearthed

A desire

A yearning

Cobwebbed from sight.


Then I found

All I’d been telling myself

All these years

To be untrue


And my denials

To be baseless


I may not have searched for it

Yet I have yearned for it

And that

Has made all the difference


She was like an earthquake

A subtle ripple

She made you tremble

And the world danced

Crumbling into itself
