A Meeting of Minds
My God, it’s you.
It’s you. It’s really you.
“Such a nuisance when the train is late isn’t it?”
Thank goodness the train is late, it means I have longer to speak to you; to look at you.
“Yes, a real pain.”
And I get to spend just a few more heart-racing, precious moments in your company.
“You, um, look nice today.”
You’re the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen.
“Oh it’s just an old sweater, nothing special.”
I wore my best jumper on the off-chance I might see you.
“It’s getting cooler now the nights are drawing in.”
Your smile would melt the chill away.
“Yes, much colder.”
If you would only wrap your arms around me.
“Oh, um, here’s your train. That’s a relief.”
I hate that your train is here. I wanted a few minutes longer…
“Yes this is me. Maybe I’ll see you around?”
Say we’ll meet again?
“Yes, hope so.”
I’ll be here, same time next Friday, just as I have every other Friday for the last few months.
I don’t want to go.
Slowly the train pulled out of the station, leaving two strangers alone on the platform.
