Before I reached the door it opened smoothly,
as if by some mutual signal.
And no one could be seen.
I never really broke my stride,
but as I passed through the doorway
I felt her presence--
as shocking to my sense
as the sudden warmth of the rock floored
At first I had only a passing glance--
the impression of which I immediately savored.
It was tremendous,
satisfying in incredible ways.
And as I stepped pass the door
she very nearly appeared.
