Trying Not To Seem Weird

Across the way, in the bar
she sat there under his gaze
moth in the lamplight
while he sat and didn't stare

he muttered to himself
turned away in the nick of time
always looking over to see
if she had seen

her phone rang, she left her chair
Walking past, mere inches away
while he froze in the glare
of a woolen skirt that fit

His eyes turned to follow
hips like a magnet
pulling at his eyes, until
she looked up

and he swallowed his tongue


  1. Oh go on.... you know you want to touch. hee hee

    This made me smile by the way.


  2. gulp. I'm seeing it from both sides. Both good. Both real.

  3. I met both of my significant others in bars. One I divorced and one who came back into my life better than ever.

    It's the old fashioned way to meet people, don't cha know.

  4. i always feel like I've come home when I visit.

  5. she had an adam's apple..amiright?

    just kiddin'. this was awesome, I imagine her having green eyes.
