Upon my arrival, I felt a calmness rush over me
I found my heart in a state of nonstop flutter,
bouncing about the walls of my chest,
breaking through my endless longing,
hoping you would see that and forget all the rest.
I silenced the rapid movement with a quick warm touch
and pulled myself together in an instant.
I was happy for you, for what I found there.
It seems genuine and light,
I saw all that I needed to see,
to know you don’t belong with me.
