​Maybe my approach
was too subtle,
in the interest of
suggesting a
sophisticated aesthetic.
My preference for
erring on the side of
understated
rather than
overextending,
looking desperate
and pathetic.
Then one moment
in your presence,
the dulcet tone
of your sweet hello,
I knew I had to
surrender my
pretense of cool
because you were
someone
I felt I needed
to know.
Maybe lost on
the casual observer,
but obvious to
my every perception,
there is depth
and substance
to your spirit,
a powerful anima
without exception.
