an old flame

today i got kissed by an old flame
on the cheek and in the lips by her fame
her welcome was warm and i was glad to see
that she really wanted to see me
tweenty five years can change one so much
she was model material and could'nt be touched
today she was tall and not really fit
just a beer belly and who could blame that
we spoke of old times and how we found God
and i could see in her eye's that she knew about my crush
even then those same eye's knew just as much
but i never said anything or did as much
i never acted or tried to touch and kept it secret, my crush
and it came to me why she was so kind
i was the only gentleman that she could find
she knew beauty attracted a lot of attention
too much attention dare i mintion for wolves to miss
and the wolves they ravaged her again and again she told me
and i listened and told her a similar story of my lost love
we touched each other with our hearts for a long time
then it was time for me to resume my act; i'm not in love with you
and we parted as we always do, just good friends me and you

    this is really really nice, john. To see an old flame and have old memories and then to realize the changes and what is "real" and not real. YEs, I DO remember Kiss my grits. hahaha (by the way, I hate snow, but if I did not have to go driving to work in it, I'd be very happy staring at it from my window!)

    When in doubt, play it safe - you can never go wrong doing that. Loved the encounter John, keep up the great work.
