HEART THROB

HEART THROB

When she passes by it,

His heart erupts in riot…

The heart throbs,

It’s the hardest of jobs

At that point in time to keep quiet!

Been through it all before,

Each time she walks for the door…

I helped for a time

She needed mine,

A wheelchair pushing chore.

Cherishing each look,

but doing things by the  book…

Forbidden love

For an unknowing dove,

Remains for him a closed book!

Now nearly every day

His heart is stolen away…

Despite facts

He always acts

As if there were nothing to say.

(Nothing to say…!)

–Jonathan Caswell

AH…THOSE MEMORIES!

AH..THOSE MEMORIES!

Reminded of a time when

He fell for a girl back then…

Suddenly excited

Over lust unrequited,

Until buried again.

CCTV AND COLD COFFEE

CCTV AND COLD COFFEE

 

Watching them walk down the hall,

Observing every footfall…

When she walks by

He lets out a sigh

With a moment’s look of enthrall.
