Let the words flow. Let the pictures speak

First glance…

Amongst the crowd of people, all set for the day
ahead, thou was lost or so thee seemed to be.
That was when I saw thee, in thine state of
confusion, nervousness playing in thy eyes.

I could not take my eyes of thee, and
as I stood there transfixed, I found thine
eyes speaking of thy purity, thy expression
describing thee, I was lost in thy grace..

And when it finally happened that thou
chanced to glance at me, I felt like a thief
caught red handed, robbing, and judged
guilty of having committed a sin..

It all seemed to happen within moments,
when thou found what thee were searching
for all the while and it felt a eternity as thee
finally got ready, setting thyself to leave.

Even an hour later, after thou had left,
I was still lost in thy thoughts, and it felt
as though only moments back, I had
first seen thou, amongst the crowd..

And as I was thinking of it, suddenly the bright
shining sun seemed to be covered by the clouds,
emerging out of nowhere, and it started pouring,
completely catching me unaware, drenching me.

I started walking back, enjoying the rain descending
upon me, happily recalling the beautiful incident, when
somewhere in the back of my mind, I heard a voice,
thou shalt never forget her, for thou art in love..

-Nocturnal poet
