a new love

A New Love Story 
I had stopped at the rural cafe for a coffee it was a day when I was 
not feeling a day over seventy she was around fifty and incredible 
young her waste was that of a waif at the beginning of life. 
She was so beautiful and she smiled inviting me to sit by her table
 and I was only drinking coffee. I told her amusing stories of my life, 
mostly lies- and she laughed, not a bored mirth while looking at 
the time thinking of the right moment to slip away the clutches of 
my unwanted attention. Good time has me has a limit, so much and 
not more, her husband came in he had been to the garage, had the car 
fixed and he told me all about it down to the smallest dreary details

A nice man with oil on his hands and I hated him, but I could not kill him 
and claims his wife as mine, the thought faintly amused me, 
and they drove off. I loved her immensely and she reminded me of 
my wife`s niece I love her too, perhaps it was her but I was too old to see
as handsome faces take on a mask of a smiling Janus
