Were You The One?


They say love walks in unexpectedly
Sweeping you away passionately
Silence seems comfortable
The bond palpable

The initial frenzy is scary
The frequency urgent
Nothing seems awry
Not going off on a tangent

Arises soon the thought
How long will this last
In a web of fear caught
Attraction begins to wear off fast

The heart still sings for the one
The mind listens to none
I ask “Were you the one?”
Dim, love fades in the sun
