Unceremonious

She was the kind of woman who
took the room hostage when she entered
Calm and aloof, yet intense and explosive
She was devastating and glorious in a
single heavy-handed staggering realization
She was a visual epiphany and a simultaneous
invisible storm of energy crashing unceremoniously
through the ocean of the atmosphere
She existed in both dark and light, in joy and pain
able to harness it all in captivating amazement
The only escape was to realize you could not escape it
To recognize you wished to be consumed
by the raw passion she created in each step

  1. This poem of yours describes a strong, confident woman who is aware of her sexuality and in control of her feelings. There is a suggestion of something threatening yet enticing about this lady: ‘ The only escape was to realize you could not escape it.’ A poem about an attractive yet somewhat sinister woman!
