I know I have seen her somewhere
the mystic smile,
the mesmerizing eyes,
the blinding fragrance,
what an absolute symphony,
bringing old yore into a deviant spell
and I press my eyes hard
thinking where I have accosted her before
and as I gently open the eyes
the phosphene reflects
many starlit spark
all having her vivid image,
teasing me for my failure
to recall her stark presence
