Enigmatic Beauty


Enigmatic Beauty


I have seen you

Disappearing into the shadows,

A mere glimmer in the periphery

Of my vision,

Brief glimpses,

Often caught

In moments of inattention,

Your faint traces

Alluding to a beauty

So unfathomable

It may be fatal to behold.


How similar you are

To those fabulous,

Yet imaginary birds

That flit so shyly

Through the tangle

Of secret branches

In the dark forests

Of my mind,

Singing so sweetly

In my dreams.


And not knowing

Who or what you are

Or might be,

Or what trouble

You might bring,

I watch for you

In furtive glances,

In cautious vigilance,

Waiting with dark dred,


To see you again.
