Within the heart of one stood the rise of another.
The gentle flow of her hair,
the well formed strength of his arms.
The warm crinkle of her eyes,
the twinkle of his.
They see each other across the way.
Time bends to slow its pace.
He moves towards and her smiles reassures,
– Fate intervenes – a car screeches.
And on the ground he lays,
with his heart for all to see.
She runs to his side.
He reaches out with one hand,
he caresses the softness of her face.
Her tears fall on his palm.
“I love you” he breathes,
“I love you” she replies.
There in his blood and in her arms,
he smiles and falls asleep forever.
