The Lines That Struck Me

by crobertson

I’ve caught myself reading today.  Slice after slice.  Loosing track of time.  My mind filling with the lines that struck me.

“I know he’s going to belong to some other girl’s heart.”

“Their life may have not been a fairy tale, but their love is.”

“Why is her hair always the same?  I like it.”

“And then in a moment I decided to poof these negative thoughts, I was being a goof.”

“Shooting through my mind like flashes of light.”

“And so she sits before an empty screen, wiling for something sincere.”

“The silence lingered for just a moment between the two of us before we simultaneously erupted into laughter.”

“So many lovely, quiet sounds we’d never heard before…and have been imagining ever since.”
