Part of The Date Series

This poem was written by the talented poet and photographer Mika for my image Hello. She get’s me :) Mika has put into words what I was trying to get across: the emotion in the moment rather than the view -

One little word and it all goes down the drain
A passionate moment stolen in the heat of the day
As people come together we sit there entwined
Hand on your leg, eyes boring into mine
Theres something so emotive, evocative about your being
Hair, eyes and skin all melting into me
I want to say more but i can only really utter
Im captivated by the sight of you , your feel, your breath
With the whisper whisper sweet words ill never regret
The day i said hello was the day you said it back.
