A Knock on the door and my eyes awoken I stared at the ceiling for a minute or two My bones refused to get up to open Louder and louder I think it knew this too Battle in my head I could barely think I walked to the door like I was broken Reached for the knob and lungs filled with matter,heavy and thick Three shots of tequila was all I had taken I opened the door as if on a mission Nice polished shoes,black pants and shirt nicely ironed too Tray in hand,his words of concern for my isolation Danced out of my ear with obvious jubilation One look was all I needed to be taken By those luscious lips and charming infectious eyes too Matter forgotten as I was lost in those eyes that seemed like heaven One look and I was sold,one look and I was taken For the 'Taken' contest

I think you were not thinking what you think am thinking now. What a wonderful piece, and sadly too, you were not referring to me! I love this piece, best of luck.
