You Make Me Feel Alive

It was a busy train-station.
He looked at her.
She was already looking at him.

Their eyes always met from across the station...

Despite the distance, there seemed to be a divine connection.
The love-signal was strong.
They longed for each other with all their heart, truly wanting to belong.

That night there was a massive thunder and lightning strike that plunged the city to darkness.

In the morning, the commuters noticed that the two recently installed marble statues were missing from their pedestals...

  1. I often wonder what statues get up to after the lights are turned off. I bet Rodin's 'The Kiss' has a great 'ole time!

  8. That was a fun read, Anita. I love the idea... I was half expecting this to be going on at night when all was closed... but to run off like that? Well now...

  9. I wish them well. I think their progress might be slow, and rather noticeable, but I'm still rooting for them.

  10. Aw, a happy love story with statues :) Made me smile.

  11. I would have loved to see that !!

  12. That is a great twist :-)
    Congrats on being in the ITB 2018

  13. Very nice, especially the subliminal reference to Shelley's methodology.

  14. Oh! What fun. May there be more thunder and lightning.

  15. life also brings a lot of moments like these beautiful statues and a thunder and lightning changes us and the things around altogether.

  16. Wow !!!! what an interpretation, very nice take on the prompt.

  17. Interesting read 👍 Thanks for sharing 🙂 Anita
