A Stranger That Was So Full Of Himself


It’s unnatural for this to happen
In spite of the storm and rain
The moment didn’t get any wetter
No matter how much it rained
This was not part of the plan
It was a thought-out decision on my part
It’s something that shouldn’t happen
The chemistry of falling in love
With a stranger down the street
Was just far beyond my ability to endure
But the mind insisted on going more deep
So pleasant to look upon
I looked for his sparkling eyes
Stirred by something bright
I could never go a day without thinking about that smile
So natural and beautiful
Thinking about that possibility
I just didn’t want to face it
I didn’t want to act like a fool
But the unusual pressure in my body
Was too high to ignore
In a mad desperate attempt to get to know him
I tapped him on the shoulders
I trembled with fear when he turned
We looked at each other in the eyes
Lost for words I just smiled from ear to ear
I don't even know why that smile
Planted itself on my lips
Soon enough the glow faded away
With that confused irritating look on his face
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool
Were the only words that danced in my mind
He was so full of himself
One could hardly take it all in
He walked away without a word
In spite of pain and heartache
I was glad I won’t see him no more
I swear all those thoughts about him
Will leave me tonight

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
