an unexpected error in my programming
an oversight, a glitch in my system
a skip in my heartbeat
unaccounted for, verily
i built myself from the ground up
structured so carefully,
strong to withstand anything
and then came you
the missed variable.
i realized in this matter, i had
my head buried deep in the sand
but you dug me out, and i digress,
the malfunction was necessary
the lack of sleight of hand
for when came you
so the rest of me did, too.
and so my heart skips ardently,
when i shut down for the night
and let visions of you set the scene
and paint my dreams so vividly.
i have found the final piece,
it was merely your hand on my cheek.
