Distant Lovers Meet

They steal precious moments once sought
after by many, whispering heartfelt desires
sharing what inspires them
to become more than a passing thought
They find refuge in one another’s embrace
longing to hear each others words spoken
each becomes a well deserved token
in this game being played
They exchange a myriad of emotions
in this planned meeting of chance
having longed for a hushed romance
in an abandoned place
They share his/her stories of
past regrets and mistakes
wanting no additional heartache
desiring to walk through this open door
That has now presented itself
not really knowing what to expect
but longing to explore
the possibility of the two
coming together as one
in thoughts, in actions, and in fears
hoping that the one feels the same as the other
but willing to take a chance to ignore
the anxiety and proceed into a territory that is unexplored
