It Wasn’t Supposed to Happen

She gasped
—and little did he know—
she fled around the corner
but there was no air there.
It wasn’t supposed to happen,
not so late in life.
A touch, a single touch, a gentle touch.
A single word, a word no one else heard:
her name.

She knew
—and little did he know—
she stared into the rational world
but there were no answers there.
It happened when it wasn’t supposed to happen,
and so late in life.
A chill, a single chill, unlike any other.
An emotion, one she’d never known:
love.
