You had such an ordinary name.
I still hear the world
Whispering it to me,
Sometimes through the flashing screen,
Across the world,
And sometimes as a fading moment
Stolen out of a stranger’s life.
Every time I come across
Your name like this,
When my guard is down,
A breath is drawn in,
Trying to quench
The suddenly roaring fire
That blooms unfailingly, every time,
Inside me.
