    Love Like Lightning

    I love you so very much
    So beautiful,so dangerous to touch
    Your love is here shortly gone the next moment
    So short lived that my heart is now bent
    Fast, powerful, quick
    Your love hit me like a brick
    Love near impossible to catch
    Speed impossible to match
    Caught then ripped away
    We do this day after day
    Bright beautiful and deadly
    You are a lethal medley
    Flash of flirt left flash forwards
    You understand me by actions or words
    So cool from afar painful when near
    At far an aw and close it's fear
    Just like thunder your painlessness comes last
    Weather permits sadness and painful forecast

    I love the comparison of love to lightning. I often find myself comparing it to a storm, an ocean, the wind. Something so vast that it's hard to hold on to. Very good write. Like the picture too! :)

    Great write keep writing and sharing, love the flow and wording.....

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
