A Dime Store Romance



How could this be, it just doesn't happen Feels like a dime store romance Something contrived with a short snappy title Too perfect to happen by chance But real love it is, make no mistake As real as the gleam in your eyes When we see a stranger who turns your head Can't stop staring though we try It's best not to question it, this magical time It stays the whole of your life If you recognize the signs jump at the chance They don't usually happen twice A special moment, when the world stands still It can last thirty years or more Nothing can change it, heaven nor hell A feeling that can't be ignored © Jack Ellison 2013

    Fantastic! Though, it sounds like the value of that "dime" increased exponentially into priceless. Very well done!

    Dragon once had a dimestore romance with a dimestore indian... It just wasn't meant to be... One puff and the wooden Indian lady went up in smoke... Poor Dragon... He was broken hearted... till he he found the barber poll at the barber shop... Kept him facinated for hours... had to wait till the barber turned off his pole to get him home... LOL...
