Not crazy about the title - please suggest if you have any ideas! A poem that was actually quite hard to write but I hope you enjoy it regardless :) Please comment what you thought and how you interpret the story of it

Familiar but Unfamiliar Faces | #poemsonly

June 3, 2020


Just another day in the office,
Except mine was a windy rooftop,
Watching his every move
Incapable to stop.

I do not even know him, 
But its important to stay detached, 
For how could I do it,
If our paths had matched. 

Tools, rather than a computer,
A  rifle with telescopic lens.
There was no need for a silencer,
Or for a book and pens.

The noise downed in droning traffic, 
Fingers curling around the trigger,
Waiting for the moment to strike,
Waiting for that something bigger.

His big boots made a rhythmical noise,
As he paced up and down,
His face stern yet peaceful,
Without the slightest trace of a frown.

His muscular definition, 
Etched like out of stones,
Covering his entire back,
Illuminating his bones.

 Gun loaded and ready, 
Heart set to fire. 
One clean shot and its over,
No need to escalate it higher. 

The he looked at me.
The whole world seemed to stop, 
Lost in a familiar transcendent gaze
Even, my gun I did drop. 

His curls a midnight black, 
His eyes a shiny blue 
I had one mission - just one
                            And it seems I failed that too.
