Love tip-toed
Into the place
Between the breaths
Finding space
In the pause
She made herself
At home
She did not
Come in a rush
More like the
Blush of dawn
A prelude
The hesitant notes
Of an unsung song
Unasked, uninvited
She was not perturbed
She simply sat
And waited
And waited
To be recognised
To be seen
Like a rising tide
She flowed into my life
Irresistibly insistent
Seeping into me
Filling me
I drowned

As love tip-toed into me
