"The Truth About Love"

PAD Challenge Day 24.

What was it about her?
Why not the waitress at your favorite diner
or the girl you bumped into at the supermarket?
I learned early on that you crave the impossible,
but there you stood, eyes focused like a telescope,
when you turned and said to me,
She's the one.
How did you know?

Was it the way she smiled at you
on the street? Was it the way she laughed
till her eyes sparkled, like she'd never been allowed to laugh before?
Or maybe it was the way she grabbed you by the shoulders,
spun you around,
and said,
Look at me,
and for the first time, you didn't hesitate.
