Melt My Heart

Was it the room full of words

I was lost within

Where you first spied me,

Between the sonnets and the free verse?

I spin yarns of fairies

And many tales of fancy.

Your tender approach so apprehensive

Claiming intimidation

Thinking my words contained substance.

But it was just me being me

Pretentious at times, erudite even

Playing with words and random ideas.

When you spoke I took notice

Turning my gaze from within

And looking out  saw compassion.

You reach out to so many

I stand in awe;

You have an audience who needs you

Whilst I write for any idle mind.

But when your words flow my way

I listen, spellbound.

I am addicted to you

As each day, your words melt my heart.

    I liked these lines: “When you spoke I took notice

    Turning my gaze from within” Nice criteria getting someone to turn the gaze from within.
