This is about two persons I know, and its an everyday occurence between two sincere hearts in real life

All the smiles so enchanting
Then the attention never wanting
Like the trap of a hunter unsuspecting
She didnít see me coming

With the gentility of a dove
And the scent of only a clove
Never expected the stares of love
She didnít see me coming

Had she seen me coming
She would as usual avoid the burning
All she saw as unnecessary warning
But, she didnít see me coming

The feel of this poem is intensely sensual, as though a beast is unleashing its preternatural powers on an unsuspecting prey. Even the flow is beguiling and the imagery tantalizing. Nicely done.

I really like this. Post more poems.
Reviewed by Richard Orey 9/11/2007
As is often the case in matters of the heart, one flashes a bedeviling smile and never knows at the time the fire they've ignited. Is it any wonder then, "She didn't see me coming"?

An interesting poem, Richard, about what we see with our eyes but don't perceive with our mind. I like your characterization, "Like the trap of a hunter unsuspecting."

Obviously, when you see people you see more of them than just their flesh.

Loved it!
