A flash of eyes
An unexpected lightning bolt,
A sudden glance, a fearsome jolt,
A striking impact locked in time,
A lasting dream, forever mine.
A love I know that cannot be,
But I can dream, pretend that she,
Has favoured me ... not true alas,
This woman I can never have.
A twist of fate, a trick of sorts,
A smile but all else out of court,
A path that I can never take,
A love too far, a love too late.
A love too late, but still I find,
What e’re the hour she’s on my mind,
No place to run, no place to hide,
A victim of a flash of eyes.
