Until One Day

Although I lived before
Bliss was measured day by day.
Cheerful moments dulled in empty rooms
Devoid of a kindred spirit
Each day started the same, 
Free from all but me,
Graced by diminished 
Hopes of ever finding "You".
Inside I cried,
Just me, alone.
Kindled embers 
Languished in shadows,
Mesmerizing lonely glows
Never meant to burn again,
Only to wait, only to wait.
Perhaps love will never come again
Quelled by fear of pain,
Reminded of fickle
Suffocating sophisticates,
Tempting liars lost like me, 
Until one day she walked in -
Veronique, more beautiful than her name,
With a heart that sang, and with
X's and O's that I could hold.
Your breath was that soft
Zephyr that once more sparked a flame.
