The jokes weren’t even that funny,
In fact, now that I think about them,
They were really just so corny.
Every word that was spoken,
Seemed filled with light,
Able to heal what had been broken.
The slightest touch,
Seemed to awaken my senses,
And made me long for
The most wonderful circumstances.
An innocent glance,
Set my heartbeat in motion,
Making me wonder when it happened;
When did I sip from the love potion?
In the end,
It was all but a dream,
The feelings faded away,
And my heart sang a calming hymn.
