Original Poetry – 'Stand By' (5 Minute Freewrite)steemCreated with Sketch.

in freewritepoetry •  3 months ago

In his heart
He whispered

A flash of green was all it took:
The light in your eyes
Made me helpless
And you will never know

I fall before you
Every day
When your path crosses mine
A silent wish hangs in the air:

Waiting
Yearning
Hoping
For those green eyes
To fall upon me

As I stand by ... helpless.

In my heart
I whisper

I fall before you
Every day
For now you know
With you
I am ... helpless.

Nice poem, Aisling! :)

Thank you, @felt.buzz 😊

Beautiful poem! I love the emotional stirring and identify with the helpless.

·

Thank you, @wandrnrose7. I had five minutes to try and convey the whirlwind of emotions that accompany sudden love at first sight: the anxiety, the elation, the wonder, and above all, the sense that we really have been rendered helpless – vulnerable, uncertain – because of it. Did my best with it! ❤️

I love it!

Great job Aisling... Your poem captured the feelings of love at first sight perfectly.. Not an easy task!

Wow, you put new meaning in hoping to see a green flash (at sunset).
Perhaps today's prompt will inspire something dreamy.

Thanks, @eyedreemit! Just finished the new prompt response for today. 😊

Wow, this is beautiful, really well done!

I enjoyed your poem! Its the emotions of two lovers, there is a welling up inside, when you cross, I used to work with my wife before we were married, and I had the hardest time, she was my boss, and I had to be professional, in front of students and clients and it was so hard, I was helpless...:)

Oh yes, maintaining a professional facade around the person you're in love with is almost impossible! 😂

Oh it was! It was so hard! Then I married her! ;p
