    Wasn't the best looking man in the club but
    it was just something about you, the way
    you smiled even as they turned you down
    time and time again.
    You didn't see me even as I danced in the
    middle of the crowd my eyes were locked
    on you...I never said a word that night!
    I know, it's sad but it's true!

    Saw you in the Supermarket your hair
    was not exaclty in tact and you had
    something stuck on your back...
    You were comfortable looking in your
    jeans and your houseshoes perusing
    the aisles as if on some great expedition.
    Did I forget to mention ?
    I never said a word that day!
    It's sad but it's true.

    I watched you slowly through the
    fall and winter right into the spring
    full bearded and unkempt , at least
    to everyone else you were! To me
    you were mysterious and curious
    as you stared back sheepishly
    beneath shadowy butterfly lashes
    and still we never spoke that day!
    So sad , but it's true.

    You sat in the kitchen with your
    makeover look, I had no idea
    who was watching me cook.
    It just felt good to have somebody...
    While everyone else continued to
    party! I didn't even recognize you
    for many hours and care free
    conversation p***ed between
    us as I prepared my annual feast.
    But at least...
    we spoke and we laughed and
    I felt the sexual tension , I know
    you felt it too...
    We exchanged names and not
    much more, "Until next time you
    say!"
    And I wanted to reach out and
    stroke your soft clean shaven
    skin...but then...I didn't, I just
    looked at you!
    I know it's sad but it's true!

    I will keep you posted...this was really an old poem that I never shared, it felt good to take it out of the box and set it out for the people, now if they just read! LOL

    Blessings On Ya HOuse!:D
