A Night With A Stranger.

A Night With A Stranger.

A Poem by Kay Salisu Titilola
"

....

"


Staring through the cleanness of my window's glass.
In a night too old to hide the countless stars.

I saw a young damsel robed in dazzling white.
Like a ghost descending from the highest sky.
She's beautiful, cute with charming eyes,
Like a queen she appeared so majestical.
Her lips, her nose, her shape and her size,
Were all too comely to be called angelical.
Is this a human or an heavenly being?
I was too confused to find an answer.

Slowly she walked across the roadless miles,
Towards my direction with winks and smile.
My heart was furiously kicking me out,
As she kept coming nearer and nearer.
I wish I could run but couldn't move,
My veins and muscles ignored my order.
Until she came around cooling my mood,
Telling me to kick off my fearful fright.

She came to stand right by my side,
With some smiles that heal my heart.
She thought me things I've never learn,
Things too far beyond my mind.
She told me never to judge by sight,
That beauty isn't in the face that attract.
But in the act and personality,
And a man's daily ways of life.

She told me to show love to others,
Even though they hates me back.
That I could tame their wicked heart,
Through my gentle friendly smile.
Still enjoying the time with her,
She suddenly said goodbye,
Disappearing into the dampy air,
Now returning me to loneliness.

But I wish she could stay forever,
Just her and I in the wonderland.

I get the feeling that there is some push-and-pull going on in the heart of your narrator . . . the words say she welcomes this spirit & she embraces the lessons, but there's a bit of turbulence between the lines that gives an impression that the narrator is blown away & trying to absorb what's happening. It's like the narrator has not bought in to these lessons fully yet, but just describing the vision that visited. This tentative nature (rather than embracing enthusiastically) gives your message tension & makes us wonder more deeply (like motivations & intents) rather than just what the words convey (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thank you very much, Verse.
You really got it right.
Ok that was some fantasy Kay. It has an element of exestentialism mixed with a sad need for company. I liked the description of the unangelic comely woman. Much nicer than any angel lol!
