Chris, the Young One

  • Mood:

Glimpses of intimacy (Chris exchanges warm fuzzies)

You glimmer brightly
Catching my eye in a flash
I turn, smile, wave back
Yet for all the intensity in the world
We're each distinctly shy, somehow afraid
To bask in mutual intimate warmth
Lest it flickers out just as fiercely
Are we just one-upping each other in a game
Where the only winning is not playing?
Distance can be so comforting again
Knowing you never have to feel the heat
As distant as dreams
If I reach out with my feelings
Will you touch back
Like two cats stretching in the sun
Teasing each other?

The final stanza was originally written in haiku form:

As distant as dreams
Feeling touches, touches back
Teasing each other
