One Deep Breath-Fibs

eyes
lock
time stops
old loves meet
breathless lips touch softly
hearts healed they continue on


Has it happened that you've unexpectedly run into an old flame? For a second you're stopped in time, your heart beating wildly, palms getting suddenly sweaty. You stop, perhaps exchange awkward greetings, until, no words left, you gently and sadly kiss goodbye.

I don't know if this counts, but I heard yesterday that I man I was crazy about, and who lied to me, has gotten married. It's left me with a strange sadness.

I love this photo, it's great.
This is very poignant for me at the moment as an old love is returning from sea soon and we are meeting up....feel both excitement and nostaglia, along with a little sadness for the mix.
Love the fib..:)
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Pleased to hear that I'm not the only obsessive :)

Fabulous fib, Becca! I love the photo accompanying. These fibs have sort of taken me by surprise; I'm surprised how much I like them.
