Walks this earth

24 Mar


There is a woman.

She walks this earth.

I have not met her, although I once came close. I have barely seen her, though glimpses have thrilled me. I have never spoken to her, although I swear I can hear her sweet accent in my head. And in my dreams.

I do not know her perfume but her scent thrills me. I have not touched her but can almost feel her skin beneath my finger tips. I have not looked into her eyes, but feel light-headed at the thought.

I have not owned her, but the hunger to do so consumes me.

There is a woman.

She walks this earth.

This is by no means new. I wrote it at least five years ago. It has been plagiarised a number of times, which I am told is a compliment. 

I like this piece very much. And one thing I do know for certain – there is a woman who walks the earth….
