That Night…

Two eyes made contact,
his presence to me made a significant impact,
the chemical reaction between our eyes was spontaneous and direct,
the way he spoke challenged my intellect,
a conversation I wanted to start but a voice within me said ‘do not act’,
this was out of the fear that my personality he’d reject,
that night…

I watched him walk away,
within me I started to pray,
that on his face my eyes would once more lay,
that our hearts would both have something to say,
that i would see him someday,
oh how i did pray, that night

That night,
I opened my eyes,
and the truth I did realise,
what i saw were pure lies,
for indeed it was just a dream,
That night…
