It Had To Be You

through the girth of the

earth, I swam and skidooed,

just to end up with you:

taverns leapt and mountains

crushed, steady and

yearning, to search

and not to seek: the

answer was never to

be found: it had to

find me. every

maiden seen and

house inspected and

none have I noticed

a freckle as wonderful

as what lies

on your cheek


This is the 100 Songs Project, a 100-day writing challenge based on AFI’s 100 Years…100 Songs. Every day, I write a short poem, prose piece, or play based on, reacting to, rejecting, accepting, or doing something related to one of the songs in the top 100 list.
