mistaken identity


i saw your face and i had this impression, in that instant, that i would know you. really, deeply know you. and that the person i'd been in love with for all those years--the person i'd thought i was swimming towards--well, i'd confused him with you. but i didn't know that and i couldn't know that because i hadn't yet met you. and then all of the sudden there you were. there you are. a slow, long glance across a crowded bar.
