Fireworks Inside Me

Love can sometimes be like an array of fireworks exploding inside you, as you move from interest in that special other person, to falling hook, line and sinker in love. Elle Smith perfectly sums up those emotions in the quaint, contemporary poem - 'Fireworks Inside Me'. This original poem shows just how explosive love can truly be!

Fireworks Inside Me


That day

you stepped

into my life.

A sparkler ignited

with a dash of delight.


A match

was lit

as sparks flew.

Sprinkling stardust

with chasms just for you.


The moment

I heard

your voice.

Bangers popped

literally blowing my mind.


You smiled

a Catherine wheel

spun inside.

My heart lit up

as you were etched inside.


A countdown

had begun

five, four, three.

Two quick to one

my heart to you had succumb.




We hope that 'Fireworks Inside Me' resonates with you, and reminds you of those powerful moments when you realise you are falling in love.
