Just a nought, a cipher, that’s all I am!

The beginning

Now you know what you want to feel
It's just that you want me to make you feel it
It's just that I too want you to feel it
And that is exactly why you want to feel it

It's the beginning of this mutual knowledge
That stirs up this chaos of thoughts
Chaos that somehow make perfect sense
Almost like fulfillment of a prophecy

Seems like a colossal yet well contrived conspiracy
Of all elements ethereal and of earth
Seems like the pieces have been forever moving 
Only You and I have just joined in

There is a certain slant of light now
That those dull clouds are obediently sifting
But then the air is humid and heavy 
Ready to shower emotions in rain drop every

There is a cool breeze that wasn’t before
That slowly ruffles your hair and scarf
I can so clearly hear the rustling of leaves
They too are exclaiming the anticipation I feel

I can see the smile you haven’t yet smiled
And I can see that you know I've seen it
I can feel goose bumps all over me
Only they are the result of your anxiety

I know which tune your mind is dancing to now
You have only just perceived its puzzling prelude
But I have already heard the entire symphony
In both our hearts it's loudly beating

I can feel the shiver that's rising in you
I foresee which toes you're going to twitch
I already know the path of the drop of sweat
Trickling on your back even you don’t know where

I can see the explosions of colour in your eyes
I can feel the feelings that possess your heart
I can palpate each beat that your heart's skipping
I can conceive in you the arrival of inevitability

Nothing is now what was a moment ago
And I know it never will be once this one passes
But it will be an eternity before that happens
And I'll tell you it's only the beginning

The beginning of this conspired prophecy
The beginning of this explosive harmony
The beginning of this heart & soul piercing melody
The beginning of this moment's eternity
