Struck


To look into her deep blue eyes and see sorrow
and then equally feel my own...
This?
This is how it goes sometimes.

Lightning strikes.
A pulse of energy penetrates through the depths of the soul
at first invigorating, rehabilitating, and surprisingly soothing.

But after that initial strike?
Charred emotion.  
Reality sets in.

Lightning can't last forever.
The flash cannot erase the past,
nor can it be kept for the future.
It is only of the present--
A moment, nothing more.

Ah, yes.
Life is full of passionate bursts.

Love the light and enjoy the ride.
Embrace the sparks as they come.
