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.
