Instant Love 

by Charisma Boler, ’24
“Violaceous,” Cross Gordon, ’24

As I sit and sip my piping hot tea,

I watch the world around me create a picture 

The crowded streets 

The loud beeps 

I could hear them all until I saw him 

I sat down on a bench in the lively park

With a croissant in one hand 

And my notebook on my lap 

I start drawing the people who pass me 

Their stories are unknown to me 

All of their stories, except for his 

My heart beats a melody of the perfect love song 

City firework lights flicker like a disco ball

I’m stuck in a old black and white romance film wondering 

Can love really be an instant thing?   

Stars shining bright throughout the sky

They follow him down the street like his own spotlight 

He makes time freeze for me 

The most beautiful masterpiece

He helps the older lady cross the street 

He helps the little girl get her kite out the tree 

A true gentleman 

My person
