I Imagined...

I Imagined...

A Story by Alexa Apothic Red

I imagined we were strangers in real life. That you were that man who held my gaze across a crowded restaurant, and then we casually exchanged small talk while waiting in line afterward, but we knew nothing of one another. And I felt it all through my body while you waited behind me and I looked ahead as if I didn't feel you. But your eyes burned all the way through me. Your eyes and your thoughts penetrated deeper than anything physical could have ever gone. I suddenly felt nervous and naked under your eyes as they slowly simmered along the whole length of me. A surge of heat travelled up my neck, my heart rate escalating. You found something direct to tell only me even though we were among many beautiful women you could have told this to. Your purposeful lean over my shoulder allowed me to feel the steamy warmth from your breath, there boiling and evaporating just for me. And then, oh and then, you whispered it in my ear. I closed my eyes and shuddered within your intentions. We were still strangers but you possessed me as if anciently.

Alexa, your first sentence ("I imagined we were strangers...) stayed with me as I read this story. I wondered, who is this man? Someone she knows but not well, or someone she knows well and loved more another time? A new "imagined" love or a lost one she wants to find again?

Our romantic imaginations, whether in public or private, torment us but also inspire us to find and keep that passion. Your story captures that well and in a scene we all know. I can see it clearly, hear the restaurant clatters and hurried voices in small spaces, the glances and stares, busy waitresses, etc. So, you can write poetry... Perhaps a novel is next? Always a pleasure to receive your requests and read your latest work.

I agree with Robert. The first line was a good choice as it stays with the reader.I wished more was to the poem as I loved it

I felt like this happened to me in the store a few days ago. You can always feel when somebody's eyes are on you and that's the gateway to the soul. Sometimes we feel more in our interactions than other people do. Its the best when you're on the same wavelength with someone, then the sparks truly fly. Excellent work and keep on growing. :)

I hope the food was as good.
If he had only known or fantasies are always pleasurable as well.
Well written Alexa

What an explosive interlude. And the best part was that you put me there, so I could feel it, too. I believe your reader must be reminded ahead of time...to breathe...deeply and repeatedly!

I liked the situation. You made the reader believe your story in the poem. Nice to be tempted and wanted. Thank you Alexa for sharing the excellent poetry.
