Arrows With Near Misses

Arrows With Near Misses

A Poem by Chris

what time remembers most
is how the mercury in the wall
thermometer boiled as he breezed in

how the pupils in her eyes dilated
uncontrollably as she melted into
his when he glanced her way

such a give away don't you think
apart from that tell tale pink flush
that slowly crept neck upwards

and while she sizzled inside
fantasising on how they might be
in an intimate cosy setting

vetting his every move, touching
his lips with imaginary finger tips
pausing on blissful lingering kisses

talk about wide open opportunities
reminding her on past ponderings and
arrows with cupid's narrow misses

dear Chris... narrow misses... are like kisses
that linger in our Soul. We are blessed with Arrows that do become embedded and wedded to our most ardent desires... and enable us to settle where flowers bloom. Your poetry always gives our life dignity. tenderly, Pat

Lovely meditation on Love's possibilities Chris. Nice to think of someone 'sizzling inside'. Very appropriate Summery feel to this as well.

Near miss or far miss, the missed arrows are ones to be thankful for! And dodging an especially sharp one is a coveted art.. haha :') Nice write, Ms. Anne. Best wishes.

So, so hot! The love that we wished to have happened. How you reflect on every aspect of what it would have been like. Christine, I like this very much, a side of you I don't belive I've seen before.

Take care - Dave

Those narrow misses can keep us pondering and questioning the what if’s. There is a longing and a feeling of being out of sync because of the love that was narrowly missed.
