'He was a daunting man, imposing and scary. 

His expression unwavering, his scars flaring. 

His gait was arrogant, his demeanour above. 

His smile non-existent, he was not full of love. 

He wore an expensive suit, pinstriped and well fit. 

Yet, when he wore it, it looked abhorrent. 

His sneer was acrimonious, his anger evident. 

His ugly overwhelming, he needed a breath mint. 

But his eyes were the worst- cold, steel-grey eyes 

they were terrible and mean, filled with lies.' 

I thought all this, as the stranger walked by.
