Kissing For Our Last Two Lifetimes
What if I hadn't answered that
Heard your voice calling on
The other end.
Two people a worlds apart,
But a once in a life time
I said wrong number,
But my heart was wrapped
Around your voice that captured
In the moment between me
Putting the phone down
and redialing my destiny.
I paused and I said,
Awkward silences lasts a lifetime,
Till you answered me,
"I said I heard you on the other end
and I just wanted to
know who's voice could capture me
with so few words..
She said my name is,
and I said my name was,
we giggled and I wondered how far
could a destiny have called from.
And we realised that even though
our voices had connected
that we were just five floors apart
for us to for so long ourselves
five years never meeting eyes,
voices, not even a glance.
But I'd now found you,
we rushed from our doorways,
down the stairways..
We reached the floors we were meant to
reach, but you weren't there,
I wasn't with within your reach.
We stared out the opposite windows,
and found we were further apart than
we'd thought I saw you, seeing me.
Waving at each other.
We didn't run we walked,
down each flight of stairs.
Waiting so long for each other we walked
miles in tandem till we reached the
What are the odds to meet this near
on a crossing of life.
We waited a moment till red turned green.
That was our moment
to collapse in to each other,
and it seemed like we kissed for our last two lifetimes.
