poem is never finished, only abandoned. ~Paul Valéry
Just a Thought
Was I even alive before I laid eyes on thee?
Did my heart beat, did my body react?
Were my tears able to dry, my fears run astray?
Before I met you, before my eyes caught sight.
Would my soul have been a better one
If never had I seen you there
Would my mind still be a part of me
If I had never laid my eyes on you?
