A man with a black coat! Poem by Geetha Jayakumar


Walking down the crowded lane
I just had a glimpse of man with black coat and a big hat covering his face.
So mysterious he looked
My curiosity aroused to see him.
But he vanished in no time.
Then I entered a lonely road
To my home.
Full of trees and a garden with silence.
Just enjoying its beauty I went along.
Then again caught a glimpse of same black coat.
But this time horror stuck me.
I felt he was following me.
The started walking fast.
Then started running.
Then I just turned back
He was not visible.
I felt relieved.
About to go, to my horror
He was right in front.
He caught my hand so tight.
I thought I will just faint.
Then slowly he removed his hat.
To my horror I couldn't believed
Leaving me gasped
It was my beloved
And he was expected next week only.
Oh my God!
But it was such a surprise full of
Sweetness, and horror too
How can I ever forget such a wonderful
Surprise.
Life is meaningful when surprises
Come on our way!
Am I right!

    All that is well, since it ended well. The black with hat also must be hiding to give a pleasant surprise. A pleasant imagery, enjoyed reading it.... A nice poem (Report) Reply

    A nice write, that needs to think whether it was a dream or a pleasant surprise. If it was a dream it reflects a desire in black coating of fears and if it really happened its a lovely pleasant surprise but the question remains why he was hiding himself. In any case a beautiful poem. (Report) Reply

    Something here to say, Something to think about
    Curiosity, fear, shock and relief, finally gladness and
    happiness. Some of life's most powerful emotions. (Report) Reply

    Very mysterious Geetha but you've left the reader thinking is this a true person or your imagination?
    I often see someone I've known in a crowded street but when I approach I find it isn't, and I discover that it was my mind playing tricks on me. (Report) Reply

    Great ending ma'am. Life without surprises would be so bland. A little adrenalin rush every now & then, is so necessary to keep it fighting fit. (Report) Reply

    Why not you observe his postures
    Why not you observe his movements
    Try to observe more
    To know more about your sweetheart
