    I met this stranger man….

    And he looked at me, in way I have never known

    Into the depths of my very soul, through the window panes of my mind..

    And he pressed me against the walls of his intensity.

    He was a Cuban man, with skin of gold.
    Reading a book, waiting for the same bus as I

    I didn’t understand, why his look was so deep, but his eyes spoke of
    distant lands…

    Taiwan, Egypt, Japan, Chile....Places I have never been.

    But in his dark eyes,

    I explored all their foreign cities,

    Filled with new foods of delight, and hand woven baskets filled with
    vibrantly colored blankets of understanding, mystery, enchantment, & desire,

    Waiting to wrap me in a kindred fire,
    Of love so pure, so deep

    The oceans could not compare,

    And the glow of his intrigue
    Sent my heart racing
    As he made his way over to me,

    And asked me

    My name

    awww...thank yall so much. If you only knew that I have never met this man, or ever experienced this at all. He lives only in my mind, only in my heart, yet I am sure that women, we pass men like this everyday. They may not be riding high class, but just a simple man, waiting to give us the world with his mind....truly more valuable than rubies and diamonds...
