Tentative Meetings

We sit stirring coffee

And staring across our mugs.

Breaths pass between us

Thick with freshly crushed

And boiled beans.

We reach for our cups,

Standing so close.

Our hands brush

With a lingering touch.

You smile at me.

I smile back, and look down,

Hiding my blush-- the red of the crown.

We sit a while and trade idle banter

A smile plays at the corner of your mouth.

It?s been an hour now

And the coffee is cold.

Our conversation grows old.

I want to take your hand,

Steal a kiss and depart

-- Together.

We rise, our eyes meet.

Then we walk to the door.

We say our goodbyes

And then we depart.

--Alone I walk home,

Back to the dark.

I should have taken the initiative,

Should have stolen the kiss.

But I couldn?t be sure

It would end up like this...

Since EleCivil used my word, I am forced to use others.

The poem was great.

I especially like your way

--of adding things.

That really dictated the flow and, in my mind, kept it lulling.

You gonna submit anything?

--Gabe

Thanks, and nice pun there.

If by submit you mean am I ever going to have a story on AD? then yes, hopefully soon the editing will be done and it will be ready.

Glad to hear you liked it, I might post some more poems on here eventaully.

I wouldn't expect an answer for a couple of days... though.

When last seen, our esteemed poetry editor, a California Piaute, was aboard his trusted pinto pony in hot pursuit of a Quebec Mohawk across the US-Canadian border!

woooooooooo hooooooo :D/

I'm tempted to ask... except I'm worried you might actually tell me and I wouldn't really want to know....
