Poem: Anticipation

A brief moment on the elevator….
a fleeting glimpse of him,
a picture of serenity, an image of vitality,
a gentle breeze, a gust of fresh air!

A brief conversation by accident….
a chat with his friends,
a radiant smile, a modest laugh,
a mystical allure, a magical spell
….cast on a muted, meandering man!

A chance meeting at a gathering….
a long chat of interests,
a kind look, a lively temperament,
a bright intellect, a heart filled with empathy
….awakening a desire to be better!

A budding friendship together….
a bright ray of light,
a trusted adviser, an ingenuous confidant,
a plain image, an extravagant beauty
….a self-concealed knowledge her own secret pride

A sinister fate mocking at her fortune….
a difference of opinion,
a silly tiff, a mindless rift,
a stupid pride, a devastating farewell
….plunging her life into a dark, dead, vacuum

A sweeping sense of loss….
a heart shattered to pieces,
a memory writhe in pain, a soul lost its purpose,
a decade passed, a decade lost
….dwelling in life waiting for its demise

A sudden twist of fate….
a phone ringing on a lifeline,
a familiar voice, a skipped heartbeat,
a short visit, a silent tryst
….leaving her with an anticipation of a lifetime to come…..

Mark Darcy to the unknown woman…
