Love Letter to a Stranger

Poetry is turning out to be a very cathartic medium, I should do this more often.

Set the Mood


Oh, stranger,

I saw you coming my way.

The aura around you was entrancing,

And I could feel my heart flutter as you drew near.

Oh, stranger,

The warmth of nervousness was apparent on my face.

Your beauty only grew in immensity as our paths grew closer,

And I am stuck fighting the urge to avert my eyes in timidity.

Oh, stranger,

How I do so hope you say hello to me.

Perhaps we can stop and share sweet pleasantries,

And turn this passing-by into a love so true.

Oh, stranger,

You gave me the privilege of a hello.

I struggled to return it in kind,

And the words nearly got caught in my throat.

Oh, stranger,

The air that followed as you walked away was sweet.

A heavy wave of passion did roll over me,

And like a boat in a storm, my emotions tossed to and fro.

Oh, stranger,

I hope I dwell in your mind.

I fell in love with you at first sight,

And my cowardice let you walk away forever.

Oh, stranger,

May life give you more than what you seek.

I wish that I could be that treasure in your life,

And maybe one day our paths will cross again.

Oh, stranger....

Oh, stranger....

Forgive me.

Carpe Diem

My friends, and strangers alike, please make sure you never let anything hold you back from opportunity. If you see something you want then you must give the effort to take it for yourself, as opportunity does not seize itself. Whether it be love or something less lofty, I want you to have that which you desire. I want you to have more than that.

Even if we have never met, nor ever spoken to one another, I love you. May your life be full of happiness, wonder, and adventure.
