Daily Prompt: Smitten

The Daily Prompt states: Remember your first crush? Think about that very first object of your affection. Oh, the sweaty palms. The swoony feeling in your stomach. Tell us the story of your first crush. What was it about this person that made your heart pound? Was the love requited? Change the names to protect the guilty or innocent if you must! No judgement here. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Photographers, artists, poets: show us SMITTEN.

 

My rhythm is off.

The beat of my heart skips.

My focus lost.

I can think of only one thing,

one thing only.

You.

I’ve given up on concentration.

I can’t remember anything,

but the first time.

That first time I saw you.

I remember every detail,

Every quirk of your smile.

every flicker of light in your blue eyes.

Time passes, like sands over time.

I miss you.

I long for you.

I’m full of you.

But I am not filled.

Is this love?

It must be,

I hope it is.

I hope you share,

a similar feeling.

Oh the fear of you don’t.

A Valentine you are,

for me everyday.

All day.

I am smitten,

for you.
