Unknown to Me

Dan Williams


Unknown to me


Remembering how

just hello made my heart race,

your smile intoxicated,

eyes that defined blue.

Intellect taken by storm, overpowered;

it seemed as emotional adversaries

had brokered a cease fire.


Before you were unknown to me,

pleasures multiplied into passion

previously unexperienced; mesmerizing.

Feelings like a storm that, ever increasing,

created the imagery of real love which

when crashed on the rocks of reality

turned as fatal as any other addiction.


Before you were unknown to me.

Then heartache of betrayal,

soul crushing false accusations.

Lies repeated endlessly,

vows proven only worthless whispering.

Beliefs revealed as counterfeit,

then life sentence of bitter loneliness;

born before you were unknown to me.
