My Bachelorhood

These Pairs that move in the streets
Always a lovely sight to behold
Giggling and clutching their arms happily
An air of romance encompass their lives
 
With no one to cherish or confide in
This young bachelor admires from a distance
Reminiscing those lovely times
And muttering the word “When”
Those mistakes I made keep haunting my thoughts
And my mind struggles to keep them out
 
“Excuse me” – a young lady calls from behind
“Have we met before” – She continues…
My eyes glance at her entire being
My mind relays the words… “Same old stuff”
My body agrees, and departs without a single word
This Bachelor will definitely be fulfilled
And will be fulfilled by the right being

    Hi there and welcome! Nice piece of writing Felix. Love how you seem to hint that this person has learnt hard lessons from past mistakes and now is being carefully selective in his choosing... Look forward to reading/seeing more of your works here... Kindest thoughts and wishes, Anna-Marie.
