Now girls, I don't want to get 50 e-mails over this, it's just a poem.

I Didn't Mean It

I didn't mean to meet you
It was by sudden fate
I saw your name upon the screen
One evening cold and late

I was searching for some poetry
Meandering through the page
I didn't know that you'd be there
Upon the poet stage

It was quite accidental
This meeting of the mind
I wasn't looking for the gold
I was about to find

I didn't mean to read it
The poem of guilded phrase
I was inadvertently intrigued
In wonder and amaze

Who was this learned poet
A master of the trade
A craftsman of the written word
Of gentle, smooth persuade

A poet of a brilliant mind
That strung me right along
Wielding soft linguistic style
To make a perfect song

Writing captivating verse
And mesmerizing phrase
Enticing me with magnet's pull
Into poetic daze

And there you held me captive
Without my firm consent
I didn't mean to be there
It was by accident

I didn't wish to know you
It wasn't my desire
But there was written on the page
A man of life's desire

I couldn't help but notice
Your charismatic charm
I felt it accidentally
When my spirit was disarmed

It wasn't my intention
To confiscate your dreams
I apologize for loving you
By accidental means

Love was furthest from my mind
A notion far apart
Until the day you accidentally
Tripped into my heart

Elizabeth Santos

Mr. Rebel, you know how we women are, wanting to know all the details. But it's just a poem, as I said. I thought it was kind of cute
Thanks for your comments

This was a delight to read Liz.....and I promise I won't email, but....

 A soul that writes from the heart and shares it, truly gives a gift extraordinaire!

 Don't ask me where I'm going, just listen when I'm gone and far away you'll hear me singing softly to the dawn.

What you captured here, is the quintessence of romance!

Especially to your fellow (and female) poets!

Such a beautiful expression Liz, but what do you mean, just a poem, there's no such thing.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

Liz

Thank you for explaining that this was just a poem.  If my lil Lorelei ever read this poem, I would be in deep trouble.  I used to be that way - always laying out the traps, getting myself into more and more trouble.  Its been a long learning experience for me.  As for Toerag - well, he is a rascal, and you must never fall under his spell.

Elizabeth I have been affected in this way many times as I was reading the words that come from within anothers heart.  As I read this it reminded me of something I had written to my friend Mich when I was describing how I would know who the right woman would be for me.  I had written in part "she would be simple yet so very elegant."   James

Suthern, Thanks, dear. Yes you did choose scenic, delightful, colorful and fun

Pepper, I knew you would like this and that you would definitely not e-mail me, and I also think you are probably sitting by your screen waiting for me to get home so you can e-mail me

Sy, I don't know if anyone blushed
    If they did, they're staying hushed

Rainbow, Thanks, I somehow feel a thumbs up from across the Atlantic

Corrine, Well, I guess I'll have to write another one of this nature

Martie (Shhh) Only you would think of that

LngJhnAg, This poem is not about Toerag, but I am under his comical spell. Thanks for your comment

Mr. Balladeer,Thanks for the nice comment but...
We saw you broaden your horizons
On old Texas 1-8-3
But she turned toward the left
And you turned right so easily
You could have turned to the left instead
But like suthern, have one love in your head

Jaxjoy, Thank you much!

Denise, I am truly amazed, not one e-mail! Thanks ,Denise
