A Beautiful Stranger

A Beautiful Stranger

Have you ever locked eyes with a beautiful stranger?
And at that instant, chills go across your body as if a hint of danger.
A strong handsome man starts inching across the room,
And what he sees in her eyes can almost consume.
For in some way you know she is not a stranger.

This woman in black with the captivating stare,
She personifies up all the stuff that romance novels ensnare.
She is poised, passionate, and erotically powerful.
Men can act aloof, but excruciating desire makes them tremble.
No matter how long it takes him to cross the room, she is truly the symbol,
Of that legendary woman that few men can possess.

Amazingly, he turns away, when he realizes that this woman is not alone.
Another man enthralled has fixated his course to her with a kiss.
No question to this man’s actions, he leaves with lost expectations.
But days go by with an insatiable yearning to see her once more.
He feels compelled to return to her and bravely explore.

For no words or names were exchanged,
This man could be a stranger, brother, or friend.
He rushes there embracing the hope that nothing has changed,
Hoping to lock his eyes on her once more,
While knowing his excitement will transcend.
But sadly, the enticing stranger is never seen there again.

Hi bythecoast

This is a most intriguing write and a lesson in free verse composition. It is uncanny when someone can feel that a photograph is almost speaking to them.

Hi Susan,

It is true that sometimes a picture can inspire poetry. I've certainly been subject to that. Nicely expressed in this poem. bouquet
