About the Poem

Love is a beautiful thing - like a butterfly - and when it ends it doesn't matter how we met. It was just wonderful that we did!

How We Met

How we met is not important,
for my heart knew
that you were l and l was you.

A single caress became a symphony of passion,
Insatiable longing,
An unquenchable desire to possess you.
I knew we could not last,
like the exquisite butterfly whose life is but
a mere short burst of brilliance,
our love was an intense melee
of emotional need and explosive passion -
and although my heart was forever with you
my mind knew the folly of believing the enchanted spell
would last past midnight.

How we met is not important -
It is enough that we did.
