There was a woman….

There was a woman

By the street

Who was beautiful to say the least

Eyes waiting to catch her sight

And ears longing to hear her tale


She was a damsel

Who belonged to be in the castle

Was eligible to be with a prince

Often wondered how she ended up in the street


She was like a lotus in the swamps

Looked upon by one and all

Each willing to get dirty

Just to be the lucky one

To hold her with their hand


There were many who proposed her

But there were also those like me

Who felt shy to approach her

There were so many reasons to love her

Yet every other woman had a reason to envy her


One fine morning I decided to approach her

I wanted to look her in her eyes

Tides of expectation were rising within me

Fear of drowning in her oceanic blue eyes

Lingered within me

As I searched for ways to anchor my courage

And express the feeling that I was harboring within me


I knocked on her door

Moments passed by without any noise

It was not long before I realized

She had left

Just the previous night


My feelings once again buried within my heart

I wonder how long it shall carry the weight

For I wish, there comes a day

When I get freed from this terrible state


There was a woman

Was she for real..or was she a mere dream

Often I pondered as I looked down the street….
