No Thank You

“And what’s this?” I asked

“It is a comprehensive list of my past lovers,” he said with a slight grin on his face.

“Why on earth would I want this? Exactly what purpose does this have?”

“I thought you might find some interesting names on there, I’ve been quite fortunate in the past. It is just to show you how special it is for you to be a part of my life.”

I paused and thought a moment, glanced at the list and said, “You can keep your list and kindly keep me off it.” And with that I left.

Almost (FOWC)

I almost met you
That night in July
When the fireworks were burstin’
High in the night sky

Almost is not enough

I almost touched you
That day at the office
When you made me some copies
You were just so nice

Almost is not enough

I almost kissed you
That day on the elevator
When we talked about the weather
With a cop and a skater

Almost is not enough

I almost loved you
That day on our first date
When you talked about the future
But your heart was full of hate

Almost was close enough…
To something so wrong
