The Catalyst


This started a year ago

when I first began

to get to know you.


Then sitting next to you

every day for a year.


On each day,

you made me smile,

whether it was a joke

or simply listening

to my complaints.


I noticed that 

I had feelings for you;

then one day

you declaring your own.


You awakened 

a dormant desire in me.

You ignited a fire 

in my soul. 


And even if that 

was a temporary emotion,

everything has changed.


I used to see the world

in shades of gray.


Now everything is

in magnficient color,

a rainbow of beauty.


All because of you,

you were the catalyst

to my life beginning again.
