Your Beauty Befalls Me

Nice to meet you, my lovely lady, as I pretend we have never met before

I know

That I shouldn’t

Say

That your eyes

Today

Don’t overthrow

That they don’t glow

That they don’t throw

Me down the river

And I suggest

I don’t quiver

When I read your words

Here and there

And the stories you write

Tonight

Yet

You had a point

About me

The history

You want to forget again

So I will

Just be still

Drop the quill

Languish

I guess

As days pile on

Relentlessly

Pushing the past

And us

Deep into a history

Of forgotten moments

That are cherished

Nourished

Kept alive

By only me
