The first buds of love

Attracted to her Since my youth, Like the unstoppable swerve Of an iron filing Towards a magnet, I had left the reigns Of my imagination free To let it weave A necklace of poems To glorify the mystery I had seen hung around her. Fear it was not, When we had first met, Yet, the words failed To emerge from me Pointless though They'd have been. Such was the influence Her presence had on me That the silence Was the only edifice I could rest upon To feel the intensity Of that instant That had catapulted me Into a state of love And, its longings That give it wings I knew not 'til then.

WOW ! Well done. She must be a wonderful girl. I'm not sure I know how the story ends but suspect "Wonderfully". Keep them coming. oldbuck
