New year's day

Fragments of old memories strung together, translucent beads of gestures, glances, smiles, and brief yet electrifying grazes of the skin, lead down toward a solid pendant, a full image of you. I had held you in my hand many times before, but never like this. Never like this, to be so close, to feel how every fiber of my being suddenly focused itself on what i had now. So powerful it became my courage. So intense to even quiet down my tumultuous heart and grant me, even for a brief moment, to wander again... and get lost in your gaze, to dive into your embrace, and immerse myself in the possibility of finding my heart's delight again.
