Woman At The Store - Poem by Paul the Lion

There's a pretty woman who works at the store
a mile or less from the bay shore
I was living another day without concept
when I walked in there, I was surprised, I didn't expect
to see this woman with a smile so pristine
she looks like she came straight out of a movie scene
her eyes are so gorgeous they take all the attention away from the rest of her beautiful face
so beautiful it looks like it came from a different place
from Greek mythology or a secret garden
from a mermaid in the ocean or an angel from heaven
her eyes remind me of a wonderful sunset
in a land where all the love and nature hasn't yet left
I wish I could take her away where nature is not yet in splinters
like the green grass of Tennessee or the Montana winter
away from televisions and cell phones
away from where ugliness and confusion leaves its skin and bones
I hope I have the courage to ask her out
and see what her life is all about
