I don’t know your hands
But I know their warmth.
I don’t know your lips
But I know the words you whisper.
I don’t know your name
But I know how it sounds last at night.
I don’t know your whereabouts
But I know you passed by two days ago.
I don’t know your number.
You just stood by
And saw me ask for your number
In your eyes
I saw your caller id blocked.
You just watched
As I walked away
And cast your eyes away from the headline
We just announced
Down to the news in the morning paper
In your hand.
You just said nothing
As I wondered and wanted
And hid beneath your gray sweater hood
Roughly shaved and
Beautiful, I walked away untouched
By the shards of growth in your chin
You just shared a snapshot
Taken in the dark room of your space
Which never had time to develop
In the bright light of our next morning
You just felt so good
And I touched your soul
During our nightlong conversation
And if you give me your mind
Which you did
You’ve given me all you ever could.
A piece of your heart
