A couple of months ago,
just a call online.
My memory isn’t that clear.
Questions about sexuality and history
Interest evoked through words and vision
Images of blow holes and beaches,
sun and family holidays
a relaxed life so distant now.
confidence through online distance
relationship building conversations
an evolution of feelings
Speaking thoughts and fears
and detailing the past caused
tears to well in my eyes.
Enough to make me exit my space.
While sincerity and beauty pushed through
the hardened glass of a computer screen.
Beautiful and unexpected surprises
entered my real world.
My smile covering my normally serious face.
Intense and unexpected.
My fears pushing me into a grey space.
A place I sit now, alone but content.
A beautiful soul.
