A Man With A Black Coat! Poem by Geetha Jayakumar

A Man With A Black Coat!

Rating: 4.9

Walking down the crowded lane
I had just a glimpse of
mysterious man in black coat and
A big hat covering his face.
Before I could look at him
He vanished somewhere in no time.
Then I entered a lonely road
On my way towards home
Full of trees yet silence spelled all over.
Just enjoying its beauty I went along.
Then again caught a glimpse of same man
But this time horror stuck me and
I felt something wrong.
Then I started walking faster.
Just when I turned back
He was not visible around
I felt deep sigh but within no time
He was just right in front and
Caught my hand so tight.
Then slowly he removed his hat.
To my horror I couldn't believe
Leaving me gasped for a moment
It was my beloved but
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
Life is meaningful when surprises
Comes on our way!

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

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.
