here, not there

here, not there - where she whispered for a space
she’d sat next to him – here, not there, kuoobiediaries

She saw him, 
just fast enough before his darting eyes;
came sprawling over her whole body, top-down.
At that first glance,
he thought he was lucky,
to have chosen this pew over the other one,
for it’s here that she’d whispered for a space;
he’d moved inwards,
a start of something beautiful;
here and not there.

He was struck,
not by her sweet perfume,
not the angelic smile either,
neither was it her hair,
but it all rounded up in her charm;
cast down through those evoking eyes.
Like spelled, he’d paused,
to have a longer look,
to a word he couldn’t understand;
written in those eyes.
Deep down he thought she wasn’t clueless,
of that message he hoped,
one day she’d tell more loudly,
here and not there.
