We stumbled upon each other in an English garden.

I mumbled a rushed apology,

but you just murmured:

"that's the way the cookie crumbles."

A second time we met at dusk,

where you wove your elegant fingers through mine,

and demanded that I'd close my eyes.

Exquisite poetry spoken from your lips,

a seducing, soft whisper in my ear,

as you drew my body near.

I have not shed a single tear since;

and I now know what I didn't then:

it was all a senseless dream, and that at the time I was so very naive!

Still, there are those absurd moments,

where I lust for you to stumble upon me time and time again.
