hey, gorgeous

hey, gorgeous
are you from around here?
something radiates
from within you
something I swear I have not
seen in my orbit before

are you that one star
sent from another galaxy
for me to hang at the nook
of my heart?

and how do you
comprehend the language
that has not even left my lips?

tell me what kind of magic
you have up your sleeve
and why I feel like
throwing myself into your path

(oh how beautiful
our collision
could be)
