Transformed and Enchanted

Sweetheart…
I never imagined I’d feel the sweetness of a boyhood first kiss a second time. You have taught me that magic of long ago was never lost. It was within waiting for your arrival.

I felt something
melt inside me
that hurt in
an exquisite way.
All my longings,
all my dreams
and sweet anguish,
All the secrets
that slept deep
within me came awake,
Everything was
transformed and
enchanted,
Everything made sense.
