I was afraid to ask you for a second date

We were in college

I lacked confidence

to date you more than once.

When I called after our first date

you said you already had plans.

I took that to mean

you were not interested

in me.

Now, years later

you found me on social media.

You asked why I never called back?

You hoped I would.

Why was I so insecure?

Why did I feel you did not care

to date me?

Now we are both married.

You ask if there is still a chance?

I want to be your friend

but I’m afraid the time

we could have had

for a forever relationship

is gone.

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
