Love strikes

The Secret Keeper’s prompt this week was a really tough one. These are the words:

 | SPACE | FRIEND | EVENT | MOVE | AIM

I had two attempts at it, each time using a synonym for friend and for event. As I said, I found this a hard one to write.

The heart is faster than the eye,

Than sunlight moving through the deeps of space,

To fall with unerring aim upon your face.

The heart knew before the happening,

A twinkling too slow, so many beats behind.

Your eyes in mine, to all else blind,

Distance shrunk to a fond hand’s reach,

Sunstruck, just one look to waken,

I follow the path my heart’s already taken.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. These AMAZING lines:
    “The heart knew before the happening,
    A twinkling too slow, so many beats behind.”
