I Don't Have Your Number

Love That Walked Away

I was too shy

She was beautiful

Out of my league

She had everything I ever wanted

Confident and intelligent

What a great smile

Her eyes listened to my words

As if they were connected

She quietly sat next to me

I felt at ease and quickly wondering

Was this love or infatuation

How could I know ?

There was no time to decide

She had plans and I wasn't part of them

My life could be changed forever

Then again my life would go back to the way it was

Last minute dreaming

Two people meet

Two people separate

Which way is the way to ones heart

And that is the eternal question, isn't it? Which way is the way to the heart? Friends, lovers, otherwise - who is to say when or how two people will connect and whether or not they stay connected?

I like how you take an ordinary situation and in your mind size her up and imagine possibilities. All the while you don't know what she's thinking. She may want to or not. And you decide if you will go for it. I love how this poem is about hesitation. And honestly IDMMDL -- I don't miss my dating life.

Obviously. Some dreams depart without return.

Vandana Patel In passing two people meet. There is a connection but both are busy and go different ways. Feelings are real. Thank you for reading and commenting.

ahorseback Men feel the vibes that are shown in both action and in words. Timing might be off and women have other interests and divide their attention at the same time. Thank you for your story and it is frustrating to know a chance that might of missed something so wonderful. Thank you for reading and sharing.

shanmarie We will never know if the power would be love at first sight or a friendship that could grow. It also could be two people that once you get to know each other have nothing in common. Love can be so wonderful and mysterious. Thanks so much for reading and caring.

grand old lady Most people would say you can't know a person from just meeting them for a short time. I follow my instincts because they have protected me my whole life. I lead with my heart and emotion.I don't miss the dating scene either. The woman that I were attracted to always seemed to be looking in another direction. Life is funny. Thank you for reading and telling your story.

Michael-Milec Dreams are powerful and we may only remember part of them when we awake. I do believe we can have many of the same dreams over again. I am not sure how dreams affect our life. Do they bring out things that we create later ? Are they are minds way of settling unresolved issues so that we can move on ? Do they give us food for thought so we can learn more about life and the unknown ? Thank you for reading and sharing. People have so much to offer each other and so few attempt while other people only care about what they want.

Lovely poetry. It's interesting I always remember that they say that even if we could go back and do some things over again we would still do them the same way we did them before.

Gypsy Rose Lee I always wondered how things would play out and then again I could end up with a crazy life. I have many years to be thankful for all the good in my life. Thank you for reading and sharing your time.
