Missed Chances

He stood in the corner

Speaking to a young woman

About what I didn’t know

I tried not to stare

But his looks

Piqued my curiosity

Something about his smile

And the way he was laughing

I was drawn to him

And all night I hoped

We would meet

When he left

Without an introduction

I felt I missed my chance

But we can’t always

Get what we want
