“No one I knew was quite like him.”
Back when I first saw him,
I chastised myself for checking
The minute details of his outfit;
It was just sophisticated.
I wondered then why
I should think about his aesthetics
When clearly it was his personality
That dominated the room.
His entire being expresses power
And that’s very rare these days.
He’s six feet four,
His nose was aquiline
And slightly arrogant;
But of course the most startling
Feature was his pair of eyes.
Little did I know that those eyes
Would haunt me forever.
