From that first moment
There was something there,
Something that took hold of me
And has never let go.
I cannot see how
You don’t have that affect
on everyone you meet.
It’s almost an instinctual pull
Beyond my control.
It took all that was in me
To not act on that feeling,
To not savor ever moment,
To not devour every inch of you.
Your presence is intoxicating
And even though you’re gone
I’m still drunk on you.
