Wretched bliss

Leave a comment

by Lawrence J. J. Leonard

The sweet hints of perfume
mixed in anxiety
fraught with anticipation
leaning on a trusting face.

Hands to hold
a brush-by touch, really.

More eye contact
lingering chats
secrets revealed
nervous memorizations
laid upon the table.

Was that sufficient?
A soul penetrating smile
and a far-away glance.
Not desperate,
just intense interest
for the rapid fire
third degree.

Focus people!
In a mood for
on a dare
more than a need
and the gift of
a kind

What are the odds
of breaking even
when the upside is
there is no downside?

the complements

The wretched bliss
of frogs
potential princes
neo damsels
video chat cheaters
up-and-coming misses.

Social and cautious
hopeful throughout
a final
face to face
for honesty’s sake.

 . . . keep talking . . .
your lips
and delight
in your thoughts.
