Right Turn


On a sunny Monday morning on the way to work,
I made a right turn and fell in love with you.
It came and attached itself to my heart,
That desire to accept you as you are.
My emotions twisted deep inside,
As my spirit gave in to the knowledge that
I wanted to try to tolerate,
To communicate,
To do what heretofore
Was unthinkable.

    I like what you said; love pops up in the strangest places, and can also leave the same way, lol. Thanks for visiting. (Report) Reply

    Taking a right turn for Mr. Right. I like the way how love was declared.
    Love can pop up in the strangest of places. Can also leave the same way.

    Yes, it is unthinkable sometimes, because we have to give so much, be we receive much, with the right person. (Report) Reply
