One Second

What can happen in a second? Two eyes could meet. A person could smile. A heart could stop. An intake of breath. A touch of nervous hands. Two souls could dance. Two lips could join. In one second, the world could fade away for two people– time standing still, yet the world rushes by. A person could fall in love… in only a second.
A sound rings out. Hands grow cold. Eyes dim. A heart breaks; another stops. No more breath. Tears fall. The world keeps rushing, as their world crumbles… in only a second.

Prompt: What can happen in a second?
