That Perfect Stranger

Update: It's better if you skip this one. This is one of those pieces that make you cringe when you read them yourself after a gap of time. The liberties I took with punctuation then and that is not even the only thing wrong with this.

Well we all have our moments in life... Moments that come like a powerful wave...and sweep us along... We can't help but flow with them.... It's these moments that break the monotony of life and make it worth living...!!

This one is for that perfect stranger who made me smile, for all my friends and all others who are forever looking for happiness...without realising...that it's just next to them..!!!
That Perfect Stranger...
At some random place,
just another guy.
Yet, looking in his eyes
I thought otherwise
Yes, it's true...
He was a perfect stranger to me,
I didn't know him, nor did he!

The time froze
and so did I,
Felt i knew him already
Don't know why..?
Still I stood,
Melting under his glance,
But I knew life would
never give us another chance
Yes, it's true
He was a perfect stranger to me,
I didn't know him, nor did he!

At that instant,
There wasn't a thing that mattered,
It was as if,
the world had ceased to exist,
All I cared ...
was the mystical
Moment that we shared...
Yes, it's true...
He was a perfect stranger to me,
I didn't know him, nor did he!

Yet, that moment
is very special to me
Buried in my heart
as a cherished memory...
Yes, it's true..
He was a perfect stranger to me,
I didn't know him, nor did he!
The Perfect Stranger

So...I see the "perfect stranger",ain't all that unacquainted eh?? Hehe..yet,I think we all identify with the idea..

The one moment,that completely grasps all our thought and reasoning..the cause however,is what retrospect fails to comprehend..
And those rare moments,are the ones that reflect a sense of completeness..a hint of being valedictory,final,resolute,untainted..and PURE..

Deep..very deep..

Nice one..Why havnt u written more? ;-)

just me... :) said...

For the simple reason that I write poems for myself and not for everyone.. I posted this one just because of my random whims.

Do I sound selfish.. can't help, its just me :)
