Date Night

We sit
side by side
for Thai,
sipping tea,
leaning into each other,
people watching,
drifting in and out
of conversation,
in and out
of our surroundings

too far from us,

a hand hold, a touch,
the teeniest playful shove
(it is a restaurant, after all)
we talk of Alaska and moves
and for just a moment he dares
to dream like me. . .

is it only because it is nearly
his birthday?

or because he remembers,
for a moment,
other dreams
came true?


Please, do not copy my words. Thank you.

This Eclectic Life - true enough.
Thanks for commenting. Yeah, Alaska.

In my words:

This is but a one-sided conversation;
it takes you to make it more.

I reserve the right to not post comments that I feel are not in keeping with my values on this blog, which basically means: no spam, no blatant advertisements, no hate, no inappropriate language. Agreeing with me is not a requirement, discussion is welcome.
