#31PoeticFormsIn31Days #2Ballad

They met online
For hours at a time
Afraid to meet
Each stayed in their seat
After months had past
They found bravery at last
Agreed to dine
A pizza was fine
He came with flowers
She prepared for hours
Together in one place
They gazed into each face
Shy in meeting
Their date was fleeting
Back home that night
They agreed with delight
That love online
Was more sublime
Many years passed
They met again at last
This was the last date
No more online late
Now living together
They will love forever

A Ballad is a rhyming poem that tells a story, often a love story. Many songs could be more accurately described as ballads.
