Love Tickles

Updated on September 25, 2012

A Little More Each Time

The feelings are great and I am so impatient

I can't wait

I have a date

Off to meet someone who I really don't know

My guess is she is really something else

I have butterflies in my stomach who just make more butterflies

So I am not sure what to do

I take a deep breath and that lasts for ten seconds or less

I took a shower and I feel wonderful

Now I am nervious and sweating so back to the shower

This time to think

O.k. it's only one date and it will go great

That's it psych myself up and get mentally tough

I went in and picked out a nice pair of dress pants and my favorite shirt

I pull out those old sporty dress shoes that are broken in just fine

My feet feel like they are walking on air

Now if I can look past this one date and think of something else my hands will stop shaking

Let's look at a week from now

Still going out and having a terrific time

Shes getting to know me

I am getting to love her even more

Each day I go to work and forget I'm there

I am daydreaming of so much fun

We are going all the places that new couples go

Out to eat so we can make small conversation about nothing and talk about food

We know what we like and don't like and hopefullly she will like the same things

What happens if she likes different foods than me

Will I say they are not my favorite but if you like it I will give it a try

Then we have been going out a month

A real month of thirty one days not a small month that has thirty

She says she is having fun and she loves going out

I ask her where she would like to go next

She is so easy to please she says surprise me

We have gone to the local fair and the movies and downtown just walking around

The Aquaruim and bowling

Our work schedules are compatable we both have the same two days off

We both have jobs that require us to work weekends and holidays

But who cares when we are together it is more than fun it is amazing

My heart races like I was a kid running the hundred yard dash

She dresses really beautiful and with a taste of sexy

She is not one for lots of make up and shows her natural beauty

When she talks I listen but after we both go home

I can't remember what she said

My mind shuts off and my eyes were watching her laugh then smile

Her perfume drives me wild

Jumping ahead it's been a year

We have met each others families and we both seem well liked and welcome

We never said we were going steady but it was just understood

One day led to the next like I dreamed one day it would

We both live at home and are going to college and can't wait to finish

Now five years down the road

We are done with college and have moved into a place of our own

A little apartment where we can really see if we can make it

It's not much but with a little bit of imagination and care

We have found a way to blend our tastes together to make it our special imaginary home

One day we got a pet and now we are a real family

We have shared so many holidays and birthdays and sweet times it seems like forever

Going on vacations and planning every day together

Now I give her a ring and she is thrilled

We make plans for our future and the life we can share with each other

I am so happy and she said we connect on so many levels

She always dreamed the same dream of meeting someone who is a perfect match

But in the back of our minds we both stop and think does this happen in real life ?

I hear a strange noise I can't seem to place it

I hear it again as if it was a bell

No it's the phone and I must of fallen asleep when I sat on the couch

I answer it and she says hi

I just wanted to let you know I am going to be a little late is that o.k.

If you want we can make plans for another day

I know we said we would go out for dinner tonight and its short notice

I got stuck at work and sorry to keep you waiting

Time just flew by and before I knew it

I am so sorry

No problem why don't we make it for tomorrow night and this way you don't have to rush home to change

That would be great and thanks again I will see you tomorrow night then

I am glad you called I .....

Tomorrow night it is

I can't wait it's a date



It is funny how many things can happen on the first date

      Such originality and so relatable as well. The positive side - you can relive the fantasy all over again.

      Thanks for the giggle

      kj force I took a combination of past dates and I let my imagination roam what I was thinking way back then.You got me.I meant to say kahkis but I can't even find it in the dictionary.Then I was going to say jeans or dungarees but not sure so I changed it again.I love a good laugh.Thanx for the trip down memoriy lane.

      DREAM ON...So you dreamed about your first date before it transpired ? Or you had a dream which reflected the first date with years to follow ? and who the devil wears " dickies" anymore ? sounds like a trip to the mall is in order...

      seriously thanks for allowing me to have a little fun..Loved the poem as usual..a message within a message, beautifully written my friend.
