Waiting For Freedom

Clandestine lovers meet in the dark

Embracing each other

Wishing for a chance at freedom

Tied to those who no longer care

A chance to rekindle an old flame

This meeting is not the first

Hopefully the next one

Can be more visible

To show each other they care

More than they thought they did

Timing was all wrong for them

But maybe the future will hold

A bit of happiness for both of them

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.
