When I met you
on that night.

I couldn’t stop thinking about
how you’d touch my arm or face.
How softly would you do it?
What patterns would you trace?

I kept looking down
at the gap between each finger
wondering if I took your hand
how long the warmth would linger.

What did I do?  It was easy to choose
when I had more to win than to lose.
