Fascination

Post by unreliable narrator » Mon May 11, 2015 9:00 pm

I’ve been watching him for a while now.
His laugh is mesmerising.
Chuckles tumble easily from his lips when he grins.
The first time I saw him it was quite by chance.
Now I have to see him every day.
I have to or my soul shrinks.

Today he's wearing a sweet little combo.
Cream cotton shirt and knee length lemon shorts.
He’s in the park playing Frisbee with his dog, Jess.
I linger, wistful.
Dreaming of what might be.

Tomorrow is Monday.
I’ll pass by the kindergarten on my way to work.
Maybe he’ll see me.
Maybe he’ll smile.
"We shall see that at which dogs howl in the dark, and that at which cats prick up their ears after midnight."
