I Found You

I found you.
In my heart.
Buried.
Obsolete.
Quivering from cold.

I found you.
In a reflection.
Eyes.
Lips.
Yearning for touch.

I found you.
In the wind.
Whispers.
Laughter.
A joyous song.

I found you.
In the flowers.
Dancing.
Frolicking.
A haunted dance.

I found you.
In my arms.
Close.
Touching.
An electric vibe.

I found you.
In my soul.
Ingrained.
Happy.
A loving haven.

You found me.
With your love.
Searching.
Seeking.
United as one.

what I'm so impressed by is the variety of your palette. Here you write in a very stripped, minimal way, that is just as effective as your more image-rich pieces. 'I found you. In my arms. Close. Touching. An electric vibe.' This is bare and primal, just as the feelings are, so you are able to make form and rhythm contribute to the ideas of the poem. It's a remarkable gift.
