Today's post is a poem - written for Carry On Tuesday - the prompt this week was "It Was Love At First Sight".
Love At First Sight.
It was love at first sight,
but I never said or thought it would last.
I know myself better than that.
I know I fall in love so easily
and how easily the next sparkle can move me
in a new direction.
I held you in my gaze,
I imagined touching you,
I had no control.
I stepped through the door,
I took a deep breath
and asked to see you
and it was definately love, love at first sight.
And I tried you on.
I twirled and fluttered,
and opened my purse.
I then went on home
with my new dress.
Well I hope you liked that. I don't think I have ever written a poem about purchasing a dress. I actually do not shop very often. But I don't think there is a person out there that has not fallen madly in love on the spot when they have seen an item that moved them - in this case a dress. I am sure that even if you are careful about your spending you can still remember a time that this happened to you.
