Angelica

I.

Vulnerable
in room of mostly strangers
Greg said
connect
eyes with someone

My gaze
yours locked
dam fractured
deluge of emotions
coursed forth

Later
stoned on
days passing
marijuana
and you
we connected
yet
didn’t

As these words pour
on page
why?
becomes present
only meaningless
answers
come

Fate
sadistic trickster
put us together again
partners
completing our circle

II.

You called
everyone
and only my voice
alone
calling back to you

Ocean pounds
her merciless
purpose
turning rocks to sand
the cliff
remains

Who were those people
you and eye
how can we be they
who slipped through fingers
into pasts
so long
ago?

Born anew
vulnerable again to each other
energized
butterflies
who once met
as caterpillars

That girl
I knew
namesake of my first true love
evaporated
burned away
heat searing
her
changing her
into Angelica

And now
in dark silent spaces
eye see
Angelica
Angel
dozen-petaled lotus
enveloping me
filling an empty place
I’d forgotten to fill
all lotuses blossom
until sun
rises out of his bed
greets us
