Chance Meeting…

I met an old friend in KFC the other day and went back to work and penned this on the fly – just tweaking my poetic muscles 🙂

Chance Meeting in KFC

Flashing green eyes sparkle behind me

Mesmerize me all over again

Like if we were still teens

And I was too shy (and broke) to ask you out

How could I? Love had never crested heart’s horizon

Only the infatuation of first desire

And now, I see you again.

What of this second chance?

I get your number – chat for an hour –

Do I dare push past fear to only hear “No”

Or scare you away …

Nothing to fear – no clinging whimpering teen

But a man!

Shell destroyed; standing tall

So take me or leave me:

Invitation’s open

Your call.

  2. “too shy (and broke) to ask you out”


    I like the easy humour in this.
