Bows and Arrows

she stood with her face to the shore
it was only her back that he saw
and the pretty pink bow in her hair
deep in contemplation
and quite unaware………..
of his existance

as her face turned sideways
silhouetted by the imminent sunset
he sighed….
such a pure sweetness
he had just witnessed
then held his head in his hands and cried

so silently
she could not hear
the arrow that struck his heart
burning with desire and wanting
of the undoing of her pretty pink bow……..
if only….

she could see him
then the truth would be set free
as he screamed inside his head
“see my arrow
see me…………”
too late……….

the sun had set
her head now in her hands
as she stepped back
away from the sea
as lonely as when she arrived
when a strange thought caught her by surprise……….

" why is it that bows and arrows go together,
when they only create war"

to this day
she does not know
what made her think that way
that time she stood by the ocean
wishing for a love potion
which seems to pass her by…………………………
