No Fireworks

by TJ Arizona Eagle   Oct 5, 2011

There were no fireworks or springtime bouquets.
No birds started singing on this winters day.
A darkened sky, with no clouds full of dreams.
There was no magic or romantic schemes.

Just a genuine smile from a beautiful face.
My heart didn't stop nor start to race.
Yet this attraction I felt I couldn't explain,
I smiled each time when saying your name.

Your touch wasn't electric just soft and warm,
soothing the static of an on going storm.
Over coffee we talked then went our own way.
Words stuck in my throat wanting you to stay.

Meeting by chance as the days went by.
My happiness soared, emotions did fly.
Bonded in friendship nothing extreme.
You've awakened my heart allowing me to dream.

    I welcome you back. I enjoyed the story told here. I think the reading could have been a bit smoother as in places the word choice caused me to stumble(IMO). I believe if a smoother read this would be one of the best I've read in a long time.

    My thoughts:
    "I felt" to perhaps feeling
    "wanting" to wishing (??)
    "allowing" to allowed

    I must say, from the title, I had no idea what this was going to be about. In the end, I am so glad I read it because it is absolutely amazing. The flow is wonderful, the length of the piece is nice, the word choice is terrific, and emotion is quite strong. What seems to be your voice in this piece is clear and well spoken. Once again, this is a magnificent piece. If I had any votes left I would nominate this.

    This piece consists of four identically constructed stanzas, each line made me nod quitely in recognition of its depth and beauty.
