Here And Gone

You were there for me
At a time in my life
When I needed
Someone to care
Someone to notice
Someone to be a friend
You listened to me
You offered a hand
You gave advice
What I did wrong
Was to put you on a pedestal
And make you invincible
A legend in my mind
For you were just a friend
There for a moment
And gone in a blink of time

The ER Encounter

He was a legend

In his own mind

A really big tool

You know the kind

She was a beauty

Shy and withdrawn

They met at work

Just before dawn

She was a nurse

Saving a life

He was a patient

Cut by a knife

He tried to woo her

Putting on all his charms

She was not swayed

She just crossed her arms

One last effort

He flashed his killer smile

she shook her head

and glanced at the tile

“I will not date you

I’m married you see.”

Showing her finger

Smiling with glee

He was dejected

And began to pout

She just grinned and said

“I’m finished, now get out.”
