This Weeks Zoomers Challenge:

 

This week they want us to use the last line of our favourite poem as the first line in a story or poem.

 

 


The poet E. E. Cummings wrote what is probably the most famous love poem ever called I Carry Your Heart With Me. It has been featured in books and movies and used as inspiration for other writers.

 

 

 

 

"I carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)"
They had never met but they knew everything about each other. Thousands of miles had kept them apart for months, but their hearts were barely separated by seconds. As the airplane touched down with a thud, so did Susan's heart. Soon the fantasy would become reality and would Michael be the soul mate she thought he was?

 

 

Very few had known about their relationship, and those that did thought they were both crazy. Susan and Michael however knew once they finally met, their love would be forever. As she walked down the airport hallway she saw a man grinning and knew immediately it was him. Her heart saw what was invisible to everyone else. He took her hand and the rest flowed like a wild Spring river. Their love could not be measured, but it was just enough to transform everything into reality.

 

 

Kisses and tears blended and they knew. If you want to be with someone you love, aren't you already there? Can miles truly separate anyone?

 

 

Michael spoke his first words to her after she whispered she loved him in his ear,

 

“Your words went from my ear to my heart, and your kisses from my lips to your soul. I now carry your heart in mine forever."
