Deferred Friendship

You entered the
room, we spoke a
Your eyes spoke
volumes, a gentle
A compatriot to
spend time with,
The prospects seemed
so bright to me.
Laughed at observed
funny moments,
Smiled when our eyes
found each others'.
Then the news came
on, I gave my
Not so you
interjected, you had
your say.
Stuck to my
rationale, years in
the making,
You got irate
stating your learned
Why oh why did we
not agree to
Off you stormed
muttering under your
There I stood,
mumbling to myself,
Naught to show but a
deferred friendship!
