Free Write Friday #17: Quote Prompt

Kellie Elmore pierced my heart with this one as I reveled in a memory abiding in my soul. Thoughts are already flooding my brain as I prepare for Kellie Elmore’s Free Write Friday! If you are new here, please click to read the intro.

[Kellie, I just found this message in my mega-email so it may not be Friday but I am up to the challenge today.]

This quote is taken from The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Does this quote remind you of the abandon and freedom of youth? Or maybe you have one moment that comes to mind? Or maybe the word infinite leaves you pondering its possibilities? Whatever this line says to you, it says this to me…

[Remember this is a free write so corrections are not allowed even if spellcheck denotes an error.]

Infinite Love

June 20, 1981

You stepped through the door
In an instant, a flash
Our eyes connected
My heart…crash, crash

Been through this before
Beating so hard, so fast
What could I do
To make this one last?

Awestruck at most
Breathless at least
Love, love, love
What a beast!

The feeling’s there
I cannot control
It’s not the same – this time
Down to my soul

You must sense
What I feel’s devine
Your eyes, your eyes
Drawn into mine

I swear in that moment, we were infinite… we are infinite!

    Beautiful, as always. I admire your ability to find ways to hook into these subjects.

  12. This is beautiful, Sharla! I loved the line in the book and your take is, as I said, just beautiful. 🙂

    A nitpick, though… or was it supposed to be this way? Just to let you know, “You must sense
    What I feel’s devine” Divine*?

    Love! ❤
