Before my eyes knew to seek you,
I would cast them past even
my heart’s attractions.

In truth, I was in this hunt
doubtedly a hunt,
I was undergoing denial
fearful, trying my hardest to know
beyond reasonable doubt that
I could give,
how I would be given.

And you stepped in my line of sight
and I couldn’t erase that capture
your image my wallpaper
before, before I could
surmise the truth both in mind and soul

You were there
there already an axis

Knowingly, I accepted you
with a cowering point of mine
I accepted your enticing lure
when I hadn’t accepted myself.

I was greedy.


Until you found me where I thought
I’d hidden, out of sight.
