Today's random word is: Automatic
Before I met you,
Connections felt like disconnect
From who I wanted to be,
From what I already was.
I was nervous to meet you.
Scared it would be like e
Every past experience,
Every past heartache,
Every other time I lost myself.
But then I saw you.
It was automatic
Everything felt connected.
I didn’t have to be someone I wasn’t.
I didn’t have to to want things I didn’t.
I didn’t have to mask my quirks and imperfections.
Because you already accepted them.
I didn’t love you at first sight
But I knew at first sight
That I would love you.
It was automatic.
Just like I touch your shoulder
As I walk by you in the kitchen now.
Just like kissing you
Before I leave in the mornings now.
Just like reaching for your hand
When we walk down the sidewalk now.
About My Poems
I’m working on honing in on my writing. One of the ways I’m doing that is to diving into other mediums of art (like poetry). I’m sharing excerpts of my thoughts. I grab inspiration from many places, not just my life; if you have a topic you’d like for me to try to write about, comment it.
