Too shy to confront her

Meeting arranged by cousin

Shy to express your feelings for her

The sheepish smile and mumbling

Was all the clue that she needed.


Why didn’t you say it?

Was that why you were always

Staring at me as a trophy?

Now you have your trophy

What are you going to do with it?


Glad that you accepted my love

I feel elevated and ecstatic

Thank you, thank you!

Just want to hold your hands

And whisper little thoughts.


The kissing can wait

After all, I waited months

Can we have some ice cream?

What about a walk in the park?

My one and only love.


Can’t wait to inundate your mailbox

With long platonic missives

Maybe a little ballroom dancing

And then “wholesale” dancing

The kissing can wait.


Innocent, young, sweet love

Those were the days of

Innocence, honor, and integrity.

Love has become commercialized,

Disposable,  and detached.


“Wholesale” dancing – close body to body dancing.
