Nothing More

She sat by me in class
She wore glasses
She was beautiful
She crossed her legs

I dropped a piece of paper
I leaned over to move closer
I touched her foot with my leg
I did not move my leg

She did not move her foot
She blushed and pressed it close
She had sweat on her brow
She had a boyfriend

Who asked her to go steady
Who gave her a ring
Who married her
Who will never know…

    wow Tim how original and well written this little gem is. Sometimes the heart is fickle, but sensibility calls. I love the last line. Kathy

    Oh Tim, my heart is beating a little faster! A fun read tonight. To answer your question, I had a baby. Luke is 4 months old. I'm just starting to feel like myself again. Pregnancy wiped out all my energy and creativity, but my sweet baby is worth it! Thanks for asking...love and blessings, rhonda
