There was something so subtle

Hidden in that quick glance

A spark of emotion, a shine

In otherwise dead eyes

She acknowledged his look

With a small nod of her head

A gesture unseen by any other

In that crowded room

The music flowed through their veins

And they drew closer, ever closer

Their eyes never straying from their target

Yet nobody else seemed to notice

A gentle touch of hands, a rush of heat

Fingers intertwined as the two people left

The party was behind them, but now

They were no longer alone

Two lonely souls, in a world of excitement

Two people, surrounded by unfamiliarity

Now, they both had solace, and comfort

In a perfectly imperfect stranger
