A Beautiful Enigma

relationships, dating, air of mystery, poetry, humor, Modern PhilosopherI cannot read you

Like one of

The numerous books

I devour

On a regular basis.

If anything,

You were written

In an entirely different language

By a truly gifted

Mystery author,

Who refuses to reveal

Who done it.

You always look

So stern and serious,

So consumed

With your

Immediate surroundings,

To a point

Where the casual observer

Might doubt

You even realize

The rest of the world


Rarely is

A smile shared,

Or a moment wasted

On anything

Outside of

The neverending

To Do list

In your mind.

And yet,

I look at you,

Completely intrigued,


And needing

To know more.

Because I have been

On the receiving end

Of the secret smile

You keep

Locked away,

And heard the laugh

So enchanting,

That I have no choice,

But to do

Everything in my power

To make you

Share it again.

I have seen

The kingdom

Hidden deep behind

Your preilously

High walls,

And long

To be invited

To spend time there

With you,

The beautiful enigma,

Who makes my heart

Realize that patience

Is a virtue

Worth conquering…

    It is a wonderful confession. You have successfully incarcerated my attention into your seclusion. The bit about the Mystery author refusing to divulge the ‘who done it’ put a smile on my lips.

    Love it when you reveal your layers, buddy.
    That sounds weird as hell, but you get it, right?
