We met down the boulevard,

One tempestuous evening,

It was too cold outside,

So I hastily took a ride.

He never asked my name,

Yet I heard a familiar sound–

A pounding heart, I thought,

And it irrefutably was.

Our worlds collided copious times,

Wherever I went, he emanated,

His shades kept on hunting me.

Was it serendipity?

Even in my reveries he arose,

Like a ruthless thief in the night,

Stealing my world and sanity,

Before my unprotected eyes.

One night, as I walked home,

Our paths have crossed again,

But this time, we talked,

Like we knew each other.

We relished that moment,

Sharing phrases and laughters,

Under the glittering stars—

Glorious and untainted

Before he left that night,

He muttered surprisingly,

“Lebana, where could I find love”

I then looked and smiled.

  1. Sometimes coincidences are prepared to become a destination. As long as they are convinced that they have been united by a feeling, sudden, but effective.
    I like the way of making your verses have that illusion of love with that security that comes from a heart prepared to love without conditions. Just love
    I liked reading you. Good Sunday
