Subconscious Lover

It was but a fleeting moment

Gone before I had the chance

to realise what it really meant

A second of my lifetime

that could have lasted a million years.


It happened in a crowded market place

amidst a jungle of  vacant eyes

I glimpsed a most beautiful face

with eyes of pure emerald

which bore deep into my thoughts.


Such was the force that emanated from those eyes

that I felt stripped naked

by the searching glare cold as ice

indifferent and passionate at the same time

tentatively provoking my soul.


During that fleeting moment a life time passed

in which we became lovers till the end

sharing and giving without being asked

we lived a life consumed by love

and became subconscious lovers
