Like skipping stones
eyes skim across the room.
Thoughts glancing over every face
until finally, a match sparks a fire inside you.
The flames of curiosity and desire burn tenderly.
Your mind wanders off into fantasies.
A world filled with impossible adventures of romance and danger,
without knowing one another a complex relationship takes form.
You gaze discreetly, taking in bits and pieces of information with every glance.
For you, a love story begins to unfold
only to be crumbled up and tossed by noise.
Sounds of chatter and coffee bring you back to reality.
A sigh of truth escapes you,
knowing that it will never be.
An impossible love that you brewed,
its smells coming from your cup.
You take a sip,
it's bitter sweet
Strange it seems,
that you are more of a stranger to the stranger
than the stranger is to you.
