Springtime petals spiral amid warm winds
Floating toward a vision of rare beauty,
Effervescent sunlight sings your song
And I imagine soft pink lips on mine.
Copper brown eyes, deep and wistful
Embrace the vulnerability of my heart,
Strong, kind hands hold compassion
And I know love radiates within your soul.
Crystal clear waterfalls emanate your touch
Rippling through my trembling skin,
Your existence is a pure, magical secret
And I pray I may never be broken hearted.
It can take seconds. An instant connection formed by a short glance, a chance meeting or a deeply bonded friendship. An emotional imbalance that takes you by surprise and sweeps you entirely off your feet. A suffocating experience so intense it was as if you were drowning and the realisation is like coming up for air. A feeling so momentous that your heart skips beats and for just one minute you feel like you might collapse from the clarity between your shared gaze. A shiver, ever so slightly unnerving that your skin tingles and the world begins to blur in the distance. A feeling of warmth, of safety, of pure endless bliss… a feeling of being whole. How do you know when you’re falling in love?
