He stood at the bar, handsome and with an undeniable confidence that was intoxicating me from across the room. I had to meet him even if I had no chance. I had to say hello or forever regret my decision.
I stood up and took my drink walking towards the bar. Soon we made eye contact. I came to within a couple of steps away and I tripped over the bottom of someone’s coat that had slid off their seat. I tripped right into his arms. I guess you could say that was the day I fell for my husband.
I am finally back to taking part in Fandango’s Friday Flashback (FFF)… giving a chance for new people to see old posts and remind loyal readers of days gone by. This poem was original posted here as a response to a daily prompt from Fandango of the word “moment”… I hope you enjoy it!
The moment I said hello My world changed When your attention Your touch Your taste All drew me in Somehow we just fit And every moment was alive
I can’t say why it ended Sometimes these things just do But it left me with Insatiable memories Me still wanting you
I’ll settle for the next best thing A friendship built on love That never went away But some days I still wonder Can we get a second chance
A chance to once again Rekindle what might have been With your attention Your touch Your taste All that drew me in That night so long ago When I first said hello
