He Asked Me

He asked me to be there

I couldn’t say no

He asked for my love

I couldn’t say no


He told me it was only

One of those things

You read about in novels

The loveless life

The broken hearts

And the longing for an old flame


He asked me to be there

I couldn’t say no

He asked for my love

I couldn’t say no


We once were lovers

And now dear friends

But the lines would blur

That early September morning

When he felt lost

And I took a risk


He asked me to be there

I couldn’t say no

He asked for my love

I couldn’t say no


Sharing a moment

That will forever be

Held in my heart

Like a fantasy

One day

One chance


He asked me to be there

I didn’t say no

He asked for my love

I didn’t say no

Because I love him

(I love him so)

(I love him)

Lost And Found

I want to put an ad
In the classifieds
One under the lost and found
To find my lost pride
I feel like such a failure
used up and forgotten
no one would want me now
to them I must seem rotten
I am just down in the dumps
After seeing an old flame
Who stirred me deep inside
But it seems I didn’t do the same
But damn it was good to see him
In spite of him moving on
And deep inside I learned
My love for him is still strong

Coffee Talk

Her phone went off and it was a text from him. A love from her past that she considered a good friend now. He was coming through town and wanted to see her to talk over coffee.

She was now in a relationship but thought nothing of meeting a friend. He started into his old ways of flirting. It made her both flattered and scared. He had been the one to break it off and there were still feelings there. It made her wonder if this was just meeting a friend or was it a tryst with an old flame?
