Unrequited


The gullible ones rush in where the sensible fear to tread
But the ruddy glow of a song
Seduces
Mellow yellow sunshine
That day they spent together
Entices
Both not knowing exactly how or why
Smug in the foolishness of it all
Spinning on the fulcrum of subliminal longing
Her untidy, muddled thoughts
Rustle and shudder with his every word

      Thanks Rohit! I’m not sure about ‘sensual’… I’ll write something more deserving of that description next time.🙂

    This made me wonder why it is always the woman who is pictured as ‘hanging on every word he says’ rather than the other way around… I like it when what I read create their own questions and thoughts in my mind! Well done!
