The One

You are the one these eyes seek out

Regardless of where you or I may be, in a crowd or across continents

The one this mind races time and space for

Whose mere sight annihilates this selfhood I possess

The one in who’s aura mine hungers to be consumed

You are the one that these foolish feet are intuitively directed to

Like a compass always pointing to its true North

The one to whose heart this invisible stretching string binds mine

And as each cell gravitates to its purpose

So too the atoms of my being gravitate towards you.
