Distraction

Distraction

In my languor
He would haunt my dreams
and distract my days
Forever in my mind
Lingering in thoughts
Moving in mysterious ways
 
An initial inclination of the head
A gesture and an uncertain smile
Developing into a greeting
Conversation begun
Interaction and engagement
Anticipating the next meeting
 
Now he resides in my head
and imagination
Where I can summon him at will
to fulfill my fantasies
and wishes to come true
My beating heart never still
