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
