“Lack of Conversation”

 

He never could

capture her attention,

on his best of

days

he was only able

to get her to

take a slight

pause

as she went

through

one door in his

life

and out another,

he tried to

imagine

what it would

be like

to have her

wanting to

hear what he

had to say

her eyes

looking into his

as she waited

for his next word

to drop

truly curious about

his thoughts

and how he was

going to convey

them to her,

he could easily

picture her face

as his sentences

would twist through

the story

he was

telling her

that little smile

she gives out

instead of a laugh

or that smirk of

contempt

when something

that was said

didn’t please

her,

he knew every

patented look

her face could

produce

having watched

her

cast those looks

around the building

for a year now

but even with

all his inside

information

on her personal

traits

he was unable to

get her to even

slow down

her day

long enough

for him to

step out in front

of her

and speak a full

sentence

never mind

start up a

conversation

with her,

he was sure

she had her

own days

when a pair of

sparkling green

eyes

would break up

the rhythm of

her normally

smooth flowing

sentences

causing her words

to stumble over

her heart,

he knows that

he’ll never be

the one responsible

for that kind of

cause and effect

in her life,

but still

he tried to

imagine

what it would

be like

if he was…
