The day I met you…

By Nathalie Zulu M.

All was quiet,
The sun was at its best
In the midst of a multitude
I made my entrance

Suddenly,
Like strike by a lightning
My eyes could not shift

I can’t say how I felt
Neither can I explain what happened
I lost my words for seconds
And rushed to sit at the back
Running away from the moment

There,
I caught my breath
And remained silent for a while

Questions popped in my head
Who is he?
Did he see me?
What is he doing here?
Will he talk to me?
Will he look at me?
O my God!
I am losing it

I was shy in my tender age
Then thought, no!
Not now!
I can’t be shy

Like a game shifter
I found myself next to you
We talked for a while
I listened to every words
Carefully captured details
What a bel homme!

It was fun
Instructive I will say

If only I could frizz the time
And make it last for ever
Of course No

The sun wasn’t pleading on my favor
It is late
With a heavy heart
will take my leave
holding in my mind
that pure light skin
those long fingers
and that shy expression of yours
hoping that
We will meet again
someday…
