An Ode to a Stranger

Student Blog: A MAN IN A VELVET SUIT This is a brief post because the end of the year means that I am in panic mode and trying to scrape through the final months of school.


Anyways, ever since lockdown began back in March 2020, I began to have these dreams with this mysterious man in a velvet suit. This man has appeared in so many of my dreams that is actually ridiculous that I don't know who he is.

I have my suspicions of who it may be but I have never met said person. If I am somewhat psychic, which I hope I am, I will hopefully meet him someday. I call upon my witchy senses to please let this be one of my dreams that come true, please!

For an assignment for my journalism class, we had to write an ode to a stranger and since this forever occurring man is a stranger to me, I wrote to him. So, people of BroadwayWorld meet my man in a velvet suit.

To the Man of my Dreams

You always appear. You're always dressed so dapperly and you intrigue me the more and more you appear.

The two of us have never fully interacted properly but you always radiate this humorous and creative energy.

You have this confidence and down-to-earth spring in your step.

Your charisma and poise is unmatched and I cannot believe I have had the pleasure to know you.

I have never in my life seen someone as many times in my dreams before but you always seem to take over the entire dream.

You become the narrator and storyteller of my dreams and I end up being a bystander, who just observes as you control and create a dream.

A dream that will be embedded into my mind until the moment I wake up. All I am able to remember when I wake up is the man in a velvet suit.

I cannot verbalise that velvet suit that you always wear. I can't even explain what it looks like besides it being velvet.

Sometimes it's a dark purple, sometimes it's black, I remember a grey one and the first time it was deep blue.

My man in a velvet suit, you give me inspiration and ambition during the lowest moments of my days.

You remind me to dream and live. You've given me the courage to create. I always look forward to my dreams because there is always a chance that you will make an appearance.

All that I could wish for would be to talk to you, interact with you in some way during my dreams.

It would be amazing to meet you in real life but I don't even know if you exist.

I hope that you are real. I hope we can meet one day.

You always bring a smile to my face, somehow.

Until we meet again.
