What started as a fleeting glance
Turned into a long, fixed stare
And, before he knew
What was happening
He had lost his heart
His very own heart
Refused to obey him
It popped out of his body
And, started circumambulating
The girl of its own choice
He wanted to shift his glance
And, look away from her
To avoid embarrassment
But, his eyes stayed right there
As if fixed by some superglue
His heart skipped several beats
Cold sweat broke out on his face
He fidgeted again and again
He fiddled with his fingers
The moment she stared back
He was doing so many things
That he had never done before
Just a fleeting glimpse of her
Is all it took for him to realise
That it was love at first sight

This exquisite Anthology, a collection of sublime poems and prose, tells of the essence of love, as music to the ears and the stirring to our hearts. From “Love at First Sight,” to “Love Never Dies,” every facet of love is gloriously depicted in the many lovely chapters given to us from these gifted poets.
Come, fall in love, remember the taste of it, the feel of it within. Come cry a few tears, then rejoice its victories.
“Love.” conquers all.
Brenda-Lee Ranta, author of A Soul Passenger
