636 (who?)

One glance,
The smallest look in your direction,
And I knew you were the one.

The way my heart stopped when my eyes met yours,
How I speechlessly gazed at you,
When I couldn't even blink an eye,
In fear of you disappearing
In that one second,
Becoming a figment of my imagination.

The sparks between us flew instantly,
And I knew it all pointed to love.
I was a victim of Cupid and his toxic arrows.

You were the one,
My angel sent from above,
My prince coming to save me on his steed,
My sould mate who would stand by me everyday,
My other half who would love everything that I am,
The keeper of my chipped heart,
Who would make it whole once again.

Your eyes,
Filled with every shade of green,
Like a beautiful, peaceful forest,
And flecks of gold,
Oh- so- gorgeous,
They mesmerized me.

Your hair,
The color of the darkest night sky,
Mysteriously covering your face,
As if attempting to hide in the shadows,
Tempting me to uncover what secrets were hidden deep inside.

That smile...
It was like nothing I had ever seen before.
So perfect, so right,
I could stare at it for hours.
It was like a million rays of light,
Sparkling, dazzling me,
Making me feel faint with joy.

It was the way your eyes sparkled in the light,
How your smile sent me floating on the clouds,
The mysterious, yet kind mien you held,
That made me fall head over heels for you.

From that one look,
I could just tell you were the one I'd been looking for.
And how you looked back at me,
With those soft, beautiful eyes,
I knew you had felt the same.

Who said there was no such thing as love at first sight?
I was in one of my "not depressed" moods yesturday, and thought I'd put it to good use. You know, since I almost always write depressing poems. So, this is about love at first sight, something I'd always depended on. Because, being a kid, I'd always think that I wouldn't have a problem finding that perfect person, because the minute I saw them, I'd know. (Boy, was I wrong.) My parents told me there was no such thing as love at first sight, or true love.... No big deal, right? Wrong. As strange as this is, it hurt me terribly, because I've always been terrified of choosing the wrong person to spend the rest of my life with. What if I make the wrong choice? This voices that I, unlike others, believe in love at first sight. So, here you go, I hope you enjoy.

BTW, not my picture!!

This is beautiful! I've seen this happen with people that they just know and I've even heard people tell their stories where they met the person like this. So amazing work 8). Keep believing.
