Beautiful Stranger

December 29, 2008
By Chelsey Williams, Neil's Harbour, ZZ

Beautiful stranger,

What's on your mind?
As you walk through me, a lifeless ghost
In the time frame of five minutes
Down a snow glazed sidewalk

I stop to look back but you're gone
Stray silence and a shroud of snowflakes,
Left behind.

Clouds to blot out the shivering stars

I wonder about the mud on your boots
The weariness in your eyes

And secretly...
I begin to miss you
