Why did I not go over

-
I looked across the night club and saw a beauty in a little black number
A most perfectly set scar of 2 inches on her left temple
Almost required to add to her gorgousness and black hair  
Pearls swaying and playing with them as she talks and smiles and smiles 
Looks directly and looks away quickly- Not interested 

Disapointment to me but I can't stop looking.
20 years younger but I still can't stop looking 
Milk white skin rouged to perfection I grab another look
It's all in my mind those 20 years regret but I don't going over 
But my disapointment is really not with her but with one so long ago

    Nice story, shame about the CAPS LOCK, much harder to read like that. I liked the ideas presented in you poem.
