A Captured Moment. A poem.

The most beautiful woman
in the world
smiled at me and
laughed with me and
had me hypnotised
with every sultry breath
and swollen, fulsome thought.

I was so enraptured that
I wanted one single moment
of this polychromatic
butterfly collection
captured and frozen forever
in a gracious sliver of recall,
pinned beneath glass.

So that, anytime,
I might bring it out, dust it off and,
for just a moment,
relive it all again.

My first book of poetry, The All or the Nothing, is available now as an e-book from most online distributors. To find out more, click here.
