I did not know you wanted to date me

if I had known

i would have

called & we would enjoy

laughter, kisses and

days filled with fun

i never knew you

thought of me

i thought

your beauty was for other guys

like sports players

guys with fancy cars

i had low self esteem

still do

i wish i had known

you sometimes looked

at me and sent mental thoughts

for me to call

for an evening out

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.
