Street Goddess

Street Goddess

A Poem by Daniel Gardner

This I wrote for my fiancee. We meet under strange circumstances that society deems wrong but I feel that some of the greatest things in life come from the unexpected.


There she was on the front page of the news
What an odd place to find my muse
Her face reeked of despair
You could even see it in the messiness of her hair
Handcuffed and prison bond
Her hatred evident in her frown
A crook to the world
Another thief in the universe
A scourge upon the planet
Or so the media would have you believe
I could not help but see the sadness in her eyes
Even with a stare that was hardened from a life of crime
I became curious
I became intrigued
I ignored what the wold would have me believe
I searched for the truth
I wrote her a letter not knowing what she would do
I waited and waited
Never losing patients
I received her letter
A sweet desire to get to know me
I froze 
Not knowing what I may have exposed
I wrote her back thinking this was all fake
She called the very next week
My heart  panicked 
I did not answer 
But she continued to pursue
I finally took the chance 
Secretly hoping for romance
We talked and her voice was so sweet
I wondered how could this be
She truly was a goddess 
A mean street deity
I became addicted to her smile
Her longing to break free
Her hope for a brand new life
That she wished to have with me
Her story was tragic
A victim of societies venomous teeth
I had to have her
So I asked her to marry me
To my delight she finally said yes
June 23rd 2017
I will finally have
My little Latino Heat
