A Collision Of Souls - Poem by Mary Nagy

When she first saw him walking like a God down to the lake
she knew it was the last free breath that she would ever take.

Right then and there she knew it, her world forever changed.
Her life took on new meaning as if all was prearranged.

She knew she had to meet him, this guy moved in next door.
So she slipped on her bikini and went strolling by the shore.

She paid him no attention, just made sure that he would see
the woman he would surely love from then till eternity.

When he first saw her walking down the beach without a care
he didn't have the nerve to speak, just gave an open stare.

He knew right then he loved her though he didn't know her name.
From that day on he knew his life would never be the same.

He tried to get attention yet you'd think she didn't see
the feelings that he couldn't hide had nearly made him flee.

He knew he had to meet her, this young girl in the sun.
He made his move and from then on their worlds had become one.

When their eyes met they melted almost beyond control.
The world began to tremble with this collision of the souls.

Many watched the fireworks that day out by the lake.
The water was the backdropp for the love they'd surely make.

Their love was overpowering, yet ever gently so.
It made each think that they must never let the other go.

    A beautiful poem, Mary. More people should focus on the positive like you do. Also, I read this poem from bottom to top and found it interesting to see the roots of such strong feelings at the end (or beginning!) brilliant structure, brilliant poem.

    This stands to the love that does occur between man and woman and the romance that we all strive for.

    Hi Mary, I do like this one. It's not Lake Huron is it by any chance, cos it looks as if it has a sort of beach. Sincerely Ernestine (Report) Reply
