HOOK, LINE AND SINKER

Love

She saw HIM, across the room as her gaze fell
His eyes – brown or black ;
From this distance she couldn’t tell.
Her sensory receptors seemed to be on attack,
By their dazzling sparkle, oh so bright !
He stood with poise, spoke with conviction.
Her mind grew aflutter at this sight,
And she smiled in silent admiration.

Her first impression of him was indelible.
She prayed with all her heart,
For him to be single and available ;
For an enduring relationship to start.
Little by little, she got to know more
Through friends, shared projects and trips
He was genuine, witty, warm to the core ;
Easily able to tease a smile from her lips.

When they spoke, there was no filter
A sense of ease emanated.
Many a ballad in her mind, did enter
At this providence life had orchestrated.
He was her pipe-dream turned into reality ;
Fantasies ran in her mind helter-skelter.
She fell for him totally, utterly & entirely
Hook, line and sinker !
