Doing a spring clean and found a poem from 2006 about my first love

2006: This Poem was written for the first women I every truly fell in love with. It saddens me that this is actually the unfinished version as I’ve lost the rest…I think I wrote the rest on a completely separate piece of paper, why? I have no idea, doesn’t make much sense now. This section of it is still quite nice to read back but the full story of my affection and journey with her was so much more than the words in this portion. And as I don’t really remember the rest of the poem I can only hope that I managed to capture it all in the those lost pages. I am considering finishing it now…but i’m not quite convinced of the poetic merits of that…we’ll see.

When, Where, Why, and How?  (Incomplete)

When I first laid eyes upon your moves, you seemed alone, unraveling melodies in your grove.

Could I tell then of this future so crude? never because alone you were not but already dancing with my heart too.

Contemplations arose whilst transfixed on your pose, when? now, later or never do I make you my cause?

While I make my approach inside I suffer, with proximity to the source my resolve will stutter.

Still beside you I stand entranced, with pupils fixed on your hips as you dance.

Heart beats and seconds race as I try to define, the ways in which you make notes stand still in time.

When is the moment right for me to join you? Do the processions of my intentions deserve you?

When..? Now my heart screams, so my left foot proceeds, Alpha now! is the plea so my right foot concedes.

Your rhythm never broken, your step never faltered as you accepted me into your dance, it took all but a moment for your endorsement, all but a moment for your glance.

So fluid is the way that we move, spawn beauty it will, the sight of us soon. Like flickering flames under a full moon or the silhouettes of roses illuminated at noon.

It’s done now, I’ve taken this action but your feelings are still the lesser known factions…
