Atomic Anticipation

She texts me
anticipation builds
clearing my desk
still time to kill.

Five O'clock finally comes
dashing to my car
heart pounding like 100 drums
traffic stretched out so far.

Red light, yellow and green
driving down road and sky
seeking seductive eyes serene
a stop sign gets in my way.

I stop to buy her flowers
so deserved is she
bringing purpose to empty hours
with spell binding sorcery..

Finally she is in doorway standing
our eyes glance and meet
she kisses and hugs me
an atom bomb goes off under my feet.

    Hi Ken, all because the lady love's Milk Tray. One anticipates the meeting as your piece goes along. Love is in the air as you head for home. I do like the idea of rushing home to be with your lady. An anticipation brewing inside of you. Love rises and little things get in the way. Really liked this one Ken, it flowed along smoothly, your story not losing pace. Finally you get home with the flowers and its KABOOM. Loved it. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE,.
