I saw you across a crowded room of faces,
I was there with someone else, and yet
I couldn't take my eyes off you, I wanted you.
I wandered over, trying not to be conspicuous,
Even though I saw you making your way
over to where I was, watching me.
You took my drink from me, setting it down,
Freeing my hands so you could slip yours into them,
And then you pulled me closer to you.
Yes, that is how it happened, and now it's too late,
Too late to back away and reclaim my independence,
Because I am trapped, in this accidental love.
