Love at First Sight by Vincent Van Ross

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.
