I saw you across the crowded room

You seemed 'lit from within' amidst the gloom

I couldn't see your mouth, only your eyes

Which blazed bright blue, as blue as the skies

You mended my heart, which had broken

I was put to sleep, but now I've woken

In order to see the man who repaired me

But nothing could have quite prepared me

For the jolt of love that I would feel

I know I've not yet seen your face, but still

You're heading towards me and my heart begins to pound

And as you get closer I realise I've found

Not only the surgeon who would perform the feat

Of removing my heart's extra beat

But the man who now gives me a reason to live

Whose hand I want to hold, lips I want to give

Kisses to thank you for all that you've done

You gaze down on me now that the surgery is done

And remove your mask, and smile and say

Your heart surgery was successful, Miss Cave

    I like the extended metaphor of the surgeon here Karen, and the rhyme gives this a nice flow😊 “ Which blazed bright blue, as blue as the skies” is a lovely line, full of imagery.

    Good one! I love the ending of your piece. I have just subscribed as well as I enjoyed your horror tale so much about the peep hole.
