in that moment. #poetry

I found this in my ‘rejected poem’ file. I guess I didn’t like it… or maybe I posted a different version of it? I don’t think I ever did. But my memory sucks…


He fell for her in that moment
The one where his heart was stolen
He was sure he would never recover
His only dream was to love her
He couldn’t imagine her with another
That was more than he could suffer
Because he had always known
He wanted her for his own

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, sometimes blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  5. Yes, happened to me too!
    So strong that, a couple of years later, when she was about to marry someone else, I counter proposed and she broke off her engagement.
    I married someone else, as did she, but I still think of her very fondly!

  6. I think my hubby was like that. And I fell in love with him cause he was so sure of his love for me. I think it happens much faster for men, this falling in love thing!
