The room

My eyes scanned the room,
searching for you.
So many people,
some complete strangers,
some I knew.
All eyes were on me as I walked the aisle,
scrutinizing, appraising, assessing me,
through and through.
I searched the crowd, for your genial smile,
for your penetrating gaze,
that can see me through.
I waited to hear your baritone,
a salve for my frayed nerves,
resonating through the milieu.
In a room full of people,
I missed you much.
Until, you walked in
and our eyes latched
and my fears melted.
In that instant,
from across that room,
I fell in love.

Linking with Thin Spiral Notebook : 100 words: Room


  1. A lovely feeling when you see your special someone walk into a room, especially a crowded room.

  2. Very nice! I like the tension you build before the other person walks in.


Since every thought is a seed, I am looking forward to a delicious harvest.
