I Saw You

I saw you.
In a familiar foreign place.
A location I infrequently visit.
But it wasn’t until I saw you that I realized why.

I saw you.
With a hardened, fixed expression like a trophy.
You hadn’t notice I’d walked in.
And I doubted there would be any recognition.

I saw you.
And I was at once faced with a decision.
To speak and make my presence known?
Or erase all traces of my intrusion.

I saw you.
And in an instant I was frozen.
In a moment that felt like hours.
But instead I silently walked away.

Until I could safely see you no longer.
