Person of Interest

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

Person of Interest



she caught my attention with her sway
eyes of interrogation
we asked each other questions

without uttering a syllable of sound

an ellipsis smile
spoke volumes

i blinked
she moved on
a mystery in waiting


after the moment's imbue
should i pursue?

Nothing ventured nothing gained. If you don't pursue the opportunities that come your way, at a later date you may regret it. Sometimes a look is enough. A scenario easily pictured on your words Jacob.

You're asking the wrong guy; any good moves I've ever made have been by mistake.
Beautifully portrayed, prof!

Interesting piece. It really has a cool , story kind of format which is really fun to read. Very nice work. Also I loved the use of "ellipses" .

I’d say go for it :)
One can never be too sure but to me, the ellipsis smile and interrogating eyes seem to tilt the balance in your favour.

So nicely written, Jacob.

Those chance encounters … a glance … a come hither smile … she turns away …
Do I pursue at the risk of my foolish pride?
Damn right man … life is short … what's a little more humiliation?

A good one j.
