She was struck, as if by lightening

So intense ’twas almost frightening

Dark eyes staring at her face.

Stare into my soul

There he sat, so nonchalant

Charmer, rogue or bon vivant?

Her heart began to race!

Is this love?

Was he the one she waited for

Her wildest fantasy and more

Could this be the case?


She heard a noise and turned around

Then sadly, turning back she found

He’d left without a trace.

  1. Lovely poem, Debbie, and good to know, (after reading your replies) that you both got together… Sigh!! I always love happy endings…have a great rest of the week my friend. xPenx

    1. Thanks for dropping by Penny. Yes, it was interesting that we got together a year later, but sad to say, it didn’t last, in the end. I’m a little behind with the social media, but promise to catch up soon. Have a great week! 🙂

  2. Hi Debbie,

    Lovely powerful lines I’d say – and I love the way you sum it up by saying less, yet it means so much. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing – loved it honestly 🙂

    1. LOL Just a little amusing tale. True story though; we met again a year later and this time he didn’t disappear! 😀 Thanks for visiting, Bren.

  3. Love it, Debbie! But I was waiting for a punchline about one of your handsome four-legged friends 🙂

    Great poem – really enjoyed it!
