I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Can't Help Falling In Love" by Elvis Presley

Source

Like a thunderstorm in the dead of night
she is struck by the lightening bolt
of his love.

It’s hard to imagine
his magnetic hold
is pulling her closer,
when she usually plays it safe
protecting her heart.

It’s as though
she is spellbound
throwing caution to the wind,
like fate is answering
an unknown wish she made long ago.

The storm is gaining strength
whisking her away like debris
swirling in a tornado.

"You Got A Way With Me" Shania Twain

      Words "Love know no bounds " are so true. You have portrayed it all so well in these beautiful lines. The simile of debris is also so apt. Brenda, love reading this lovely composition.

      Dream On,

      Thank you. It is difficult for me to write longer poetry.

      I am delighted to know I get my point across in the few words I write.

      I think love just might drive me wild...lol.

      So glad you stopped by again...stop by to read my work anytime.

      Thank you.

      Once again you have captured so much and just a few beautiful words. The feelings and the thoughts fighting each other but at the same time giving in. Another one of my favorites. Thank you and may love always drive you wild.
