I think she pushed me


She brushed up against me

And leaned in towards my ear

She whispered

“I don't care”

The subway car

Lurched to a stop

I carried on

Through the air

I picked my head up

And searched

For the voice

Finding nothing there

She fell against me

And pressed her lips to my ear

She breathed

“I'm here”

My heart

Screeched to a stop

I fell head over heels

No longer aware

I lifted my eyes

And delved

Into her own

Finding everything there
