First Contact

A poem

I see her standing there
Beautiful brown hair
Wonderful curves that beg to be touched
An air of confidence which gives me a rush

I wonder what she does
I dream of her scent
I wonder if she is beautifully untamed
I wonder how graceful she speaks

Take a deep breath
Walk with confidence to her place
As I get closer
I see she has a perfect face

We make eye contact
What beautiful eyes she has
She cocks her head to the side
I know I must take great care

I wonder what wicked skills she has
I dream of how I can support her
In future battles to be fought
My lower brain tries to take over

I fight against the urges
That say to look at her wonderful feminine curves
The way her hip arches into her butt
The wonderful neck and, oh, that smile

Then I see the reality of life
The invisible red strings
Which tie our hearts, minds, and souls as one
She is my eighth wonder of the world and my soul

No logic, no science, no rationale can be had
Just the knowledge that I must fight every day
To support her and work to be the very best man
I say, “Hello, would you like a cup of tea?”

She smiles and says, “of course, let's talk”
I feel a tingle and a rush
Please, be smart, be empathetic, and kind
I sense a deeply intelligent woman by my side.
