“Wanting Just to Talk”

 

I couldn’t understand

how anyone

could ignore

her

presents

when ever she

comes near me

my whole world

brightens up

and with just

a smile

she turns its

everyday colors

into vivid neon

lights

but right now

she sits

across the room

three feet away

from her boyfriend

a guy that

doesn’t care to

know

just what he

has

sitting

before him,

I watch her

ask him a

question

waiting patiently

for his reply

with wide open

eyes

and a smile

of anticipation

her boyfriend

not even looking

up

from his phone

as he hands

her

a “maybe”

her eyes

drop

to the table

knowing a maybe

is just a “no”

in disguise,

she fidgets

in her seat

a little

as she looks

around the room

trying to

come up with

the right type

of thought

that will get

him

to look back

her way,

I can see

her back

start to

straighten up

as she sits

in her chair

the beginnings

of a smile

on her face

as a wave of

confidence

washes over her

she thinks she

has found

the right words

for her to

wrestle back

his attention

from his phone,

but he only

shrugs his shoulders

giving her smile

no support

as it collapses

across her face

she keeps looking

at his eyes

hoping to get

at least a

glance

from him

giving her

something small

to build on

but not even

a nod

is forth coming

to her rescue,

this woman

whose looks are

built on natural

beauty

carrying such a

raw

unforced charisma

I’d give away

my whole world

just to have

a small part

in hers,

she puts together

one more effort

trying to steal

back

some of his

time

she rolls out

her words

to him

with a spike

at the end

of her sentence

hooking him for

a moment

he raises his

eyes up

to hers

causing her face

to overflow

with excitement

spilling out

in smiles

and joy

but he takes

no notice

of these gifts

she lays out

before him

his eyes

going back to

his 5.5 inch

dimeter screen,

I look back

at the two

of them

one swimming

alone

in a liquid

crystal pool

the other one

drowning in

four cubic feet

of empty

rejection,

I don’t know

how any man

could turn away

from her eyes

when given the

chance

to look deeply

in to them,

her eyes now

with no where

else to go

glance in my

direction

she gives me

a weak smile

as my eyes

try and comfort

her

from across the

room

she takes in my

sympathy 

before looking

back

at her boyfriend

settling into her

chair

for a silent

wait

trying to mask

all her pain

from the man

she loves

sitting

three feet

away

from her

as I watch

her

from across

the room

wishing that

man

was me…
