Bus Stop

The bus lurched to a halt and the flaps retracted.

Instinctively, she glanced up, only to be met by a stranger’s eyes. For a moment, they held each other; his mouth curved up into a slight smile and she reciprocated.

In that moment, a meeting, an acquaintance, a brief connection if you must, yet a moment that prompted neither to move. He broke away and she did too.

As the doors clamped back into position, he returned gaze in farewell and she allowed it to be so, a faint smile on her lips as the vehicle pulled her away.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Collage

Saturday morning markets
Crates produces stacks
Make a quick delving glimpse
But tells more than that.

Daily Prompt: Bury

But to immortalise her
Love, it first had to die, then
Frozen in its passionate glory
Buried within the depths of
Her heart, full in beauty
Like it would never
Live again.

Fireworks

Pull me over in the
Middle of the night, then
Kiss me on my
Sleep-laden eyes, so I may
Stir and wake from my
Sleep, and we’ll make those
Fireworks in still nights deep.

Killer

Only one-eyed shots?

It’s dangerous.
If you see both my eyes I will need to kill you. Mafia rules.

Don’t worry about that.
I would have died instantly from them.

Stilled Motion

Swift, they burst out in
Uniform haphazardry
Stilled motion in flight.

Daily Prompt: Magnet

Forgive me, love, for
All the crazy things I’ve done
But I just can’t help gravitating
To you till we’re one.
