The first time I laid eyes on you
I called you over in recognition
Without seeing your features
Without a second thought
And that made me pause in the moment.
I recognized you without ever knowing you
Without ever having been in your presence
There was nothing to stir an emotion
Yet that knowing was deeply felt
I brushed it off as an unsolicited romanticized moment
And continued on with our common goals
Yet, here we are.
More unsolicited moments and feelings
Strung together that elicit a craving
Romanticism despite the undesirable setting
Tossed aside, and reasoning abandoned
I recall knowing you
And feeling known
Despite all reason
Yet, all reason is known.
