# Fatad Accident - Poem by Sonya Florentino

There was no way to escape your smile

My heart was set in free motion

Fantasy now seems strange and distant

With our nearness creating this friction

I was starting to believe

I would never find true love

Little did I know....

How fantastic!

    ten words or not, you have expressed best of your poetics especially there in the quoted line...expressions fantasy/distance and nearness/ friction showing beauitiful mutual co-operation...nice work...10
