Just Short of a Stare

There in the quietness

A stranger strays into my sight

In that tunnel of curiosity

I look, just short of a stare

Beyond the straight line

Of cafe chairs

Through the hypnotic mist

Of desire…I look again

Something about the face

The shape left by a smile

The dark brown of her eyes

Ten minutes of desire

Just short of lust…

Beyond the straight line of a stare

About pmisteil

Hi, my name is Paul though I write under other names like, Thatcher and Paolo, I love literature, art and architecture their passion and drama....the contradictions. The notion of Truth-who is the person behind the mask? Or does it matter! I like long walks and longer conversations over cappuccinos in a cafe with atmosphere and the rest is a journey!
