Falling in Love (2), by Frank Tavares

It happened before I realized it did.

I floated up, said hello.

We touched… then let go.

Eyes interlocked. It felt natural.

The hit only came later.

Like a steam train.

And, somehow, I survived the punch.

And, after a while, decided to go write this poem.

Because I'm still stuck on the front of a steam train,

moving at a million miles an hour, with a heart that's on fire.

And I don't know where I'm going,

but I'm pretty sure I want to go there.
