November PAD Challenge: Day 1

Match Made in Heaven?

You spoke to me,
  stating the rythmic beating of your heart
asking breathlessly, "why?!"
  I had no answer,
    for mine, too, was beating incessantly.

For this moment,
  we spoke the same language,
our emotions matching
  unspoken wants,
    evident desires.

Now you are silent,
  afraid of what you felt,
afraid of what you still feel.
  I can see the longing in your eyes.
    Do you know I miss you?!
   
Do not look, just leap!
  I'll catch you, but you need to jump
and we need to rise!
  You raised the stakes,
    I match your call!
