If we were strangers

07 Jan

Art by Henry Saliot


If we were strangers

and I saw you

in a cafe

reading a book

or on a train

gazing from the window

or in the park

walking your dog

or in a restaurant

laughing with friends

or in a supermarket

checking your list

or in a car

stuck at the lights

or in the office

confident and sure

or in a crowd

standing out

I would still want you

like sin

    Just to know that someone really exists out there is a fantasy of mine.

    The way you can seduce a mind with your words is absolutely delicious, Sir.

    I would single you out on the train, along the walkway, in the cafe. I would recognize you by your confident and pleasant smile,your elegant and slender hands would be a dead give away, and I would surely recognize the kindness behind your steely blue eyes.

    Lyrical and descriptive yet short. Delightful.
