Rendezvous

Updated on January 3, 2014

"When a man looks across a street, sees a pretty girl, and waves at her, that's not a rendezvous, that's a passing acquaintance. When he walks across the street and nibbles on her ear, that's a rendezvous"

~ Wally Schirra

Through the streets

Footsteps echo

Against cobblestone

Amid ancient walls


Destined

Tis certain

While a hurrying

Past hawker calls


No one knows

Nor do they care

Just another soul

Taking space


A stranger

With purpose

Making headway

To that secret place


If they knew

Or if they cared

They would see

The love that's there


They would know

The heart that beats

For this one

That stranger seeks


The closer that place

The quicker the pace

Breathless anticipation

A hopeless tempation


Footsteps cease

A knock at the door

Sultry, the voice answers

Yon paramore

Hand in Hand by the bridge

    But a breath away, a kiss, the look and two strangers could become one. This was a beautiful poem, I loved the verse, its visual to my senses, the video certainly fit the mood. Loved it, you are a gifted poet.

    And in a deepest jungle

    of the lost and found

    Everyone stands wondering

    breathless...is it love?

    or just some other sound

    Awesome poem!

    Ziyena, What a timeless description of what may have begun as a “passing acquaintance” and what turned into the “hopeless temptation” of rendez-vous with “the” paramour! In particular, I like the ancient atmosphere which you evoke and which also works as ancient remains within modern cities nowadays: cobblestone, ancient walls, hawker.

    Respectfully, and with many thanks for sharing, Derdriu

    the secret lover emerges from words that betray his coming

    in poem that plays a music to a reader who can hear it humming.

    enjoyed the music and the interlude.
