Stalked

He emerged, a stranger
From nowhere
Thrust himself between
Her and world.

He knew her habits:
When she traveled,
What she ate,
What she wore,
Who she knew.

She knew nothing,
Only a chance meeting.
Trapped now in
Open busy space:
Hunted, captured.

She fought to
Attract attention
From the crowd,
Inured and numb
To her public pain.

Men finally gathered,
Wrestled he. And released,
She sprang away from
Tight grip and fierce growl,
Saved by strangers.

Knowing good and bad
Could come from the unknown
She decided to keep
Reaching out for it
Nonetheless.
