Didn't See You Coming


i didn't see you coming
how could i have known

the softest of kiss
and now i can't let go

we were just friends
no more, no less

for this we considered
ourselves equally blessed

but so close and not knowing
a curiousity that niether

could cease
and so with a deep breath

we happily shared our first kiss
i didn't see you coming

how could i have known
the softest of kiss

and now i can't let go
niether of us expected

the rush that came next
at first we simply kept it

to ourselves
if only to save face

but not much later came
another kiss

one that we couldn't deny
left us in the sweetest bliss

i didn't see you coming
how could i have known

the softest of kiss
and now i can't let go

but time and space was
something we couldn't control

nor was it an option
to simply say no, so with one

last kiss we parted, now alone
but with the fresh imprint

now left in our souls
i didn't see you coming

how could i have known
the softest of kiss

and now i can't let go
time has passed and

nothing has changed if
anything i want you more

than i did yesterday

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
