“Noticed”

 

He could feel

himself slipping

going from not

caring what

she thought

about him

to just hoping

to get noticed

by her in

some little

way,

walking on the

edge

of failure

each time he

flashes her a

smile

and she just

lowers her head

and goes past

him

forcing him to

rethink his

liberal

use of the

smile

maybe take it

down a notch

switch to a

causal nod

a much higher

response

percentage

in that move

though the

payoff

is a much

smaller return,

but right now

he just needs

to put something

in the win

column

even if she

flips him off

with some creative

accounting

he could dress

that up as a

provocative

gesture,

but sadly

even the lowly

nod

doesn’t solicit

a response

in any form

from her today

he turns and

watches her

go by

disappointed in

his recent

defeats

but unable to

let his pride

keep him from

following her

lanky stride

and uneven

motion

as she makes

her way

down the aisle,

maybe tomorrow

he’ll start off

with the casual

nod

and if he

gets

any kind of

acknowledgement

he’ll step up

his efforts

and go to

the smile

trying to find

anything

to get noticed

by her

and turn those

soft blue

eyes

his way

hoping to capture

her attention

just long enough

to get her

to think about

maybe giving

him

a chance…
