Encircled Sentiments

by Lien Cullinane

She was introduced the first and then bid farewell at second
This instance now passed, lost to soon
Another day dawns, indistinguishable to others but I begin a new
 
Purity, innocence and beauty enclose eyes that flutter a story longing to be read
A disclosure I unfairly judged and queried before revealing hidden wounds that I've never displayed
Rare are such qualities found, can this be true?
A woman can trust then open then carve and still love me too
 
Defining moment, disguised amidst the flow of the night, how to know of the profound impact unplanned actions can make
Every one of those seconds I did hasten to waist for once passed I look around to see nothing has changed
So the soul yearns, encircled by sentiments of love and loss, it's only now I realize what emotional boundaries I've crossed
A simple moment in time
She was introduced the first and then bid farewell at second
This instance now passed, lost to soon
Another day dawns, indistinguishable to others but I begin a new 

Purity, innocence and beauty enclose eyes that flutter a story longing to be read
A disclosure I unfairly judged and queried before revealing hidden wounds that I've never displayed
Rare are such qualities found, can this be true?
A woman can trust then open then carve and still love me too 

Defining moment, disguised amidst the flow of the night, how to know of the profound impact unplanned actions can make
Every one of those seconds I did hasten to waist for once passed I look around to see nothing has changed

So the soul yearns, encircled by sentiments of love and loss, it's only now I realize what emotional boundaries I've crossed
