This Second Time Around

The first time around,
Love stroke hard and fast
My heart was snatched right there and then
In front of my very own eyes
I cried immediately
Hit hard by love's strength and intensity

This second time around,
Love sneaked slowly
Growing steadily, something I wasn't aware of
My heart was stolen bit by bit behind my back
It was totally gone by the time I realized it
And suddenly I realized,I had, again, been hit hard by love's strength and intensity

Both came at different times
Both came in different ways
And yet each timeI found myself helplessly enslaved by love
