Starburst

Starburst

A Poem by Matthew Kult
"

Starburst was a word given from a challenge on my facebook page

"
It had already been a day.
Till those words, she had to say.
She and I had come to an end.
Hopeful, she would be my friend.

There I was in my car.
Outside her convenience store,
wanted a bag of starburst.
They were her favorite.

Curiously, wondered how we drifted this far
As I headed to the front door.
Blindly wandered, completely immersed
And I walked right into it. 

You giggled at me
but still took the time to see
If I was okay? It was only my pride.
While I lay and just about cried.

You popped in an orange fruit chew,
And checked on me too.  
Our eyes met, our hands touched.
You helped me to my feet.

You offered, so I took a few.
"At least it wasn't a tree."
As if I hadn't felt dumb yet, my jaw clutched.
You were so sweet.

After a soft smirk, you laughed.
Your smile, I mentally photographed.
That was the first of many days we were together
You and I were forever.

This is the best poem I've read all week.
I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I think these two could make a very cute couple munching happily on orange starburst.
Every line was gorgeous.
I especially love that he was embarrassed but somehow when you're in love you don't have time to feel embarrassed for long.
Definitely a favorite.
Adding to my list.
Thanks for sharing.

For one who favors the dark side, you sure wrote a sweet poem here. Hope the collision didn't hurt too much.
