Happy Valentine's Day, 14th February, love poem, love poetry, One Night Stand

One Night Stand

ONS turns LTS
ONS turns LTS

Stranger, you were.  

Another look …

And you never looked strange.

It was sheer ecstasy

I wished to look at you again and again.

An observer I am sure must be calling me stupid.

I didn’t find it awkward and I never pretend.


I approached…

You didn’t feel uncomfortable.

It was all casual

No guilt, sentiments or attachment.

When it all began

You were shaken, nervous, unsure…

Rare in a man.

You described me best

And I was swept, typically woman

We talked and talked for hours

Until we slept


I didn’t have your number

Nor did I know your name…

It wasn’t hedonism

I would call it intimacy

And you see

While I was smiling through memories

We bumped into each other again…

Seasons have passed and we are together

I will call our meeting a ‘life time stand’

Though it all started with a One Night Stand
