No missing pieces

Dark is the hour with good times being had , the one or two or five drinks induce brave thoughts, notions of needed close companionship not of the biblical sense , events may have that say Some one that one desires to have a chance to be with , to journey with , to make all that is right , courage whispers in that fine persons ear to do one the honour of taking part in what would be a life long love story , oh no uncomfortable silence ; tounge is now at bay The party of interest excuses themselves politely , now wonder and anxiety start to creep in , might just pass out at this point , as one starts to fall backward one collects themselves and straightens up , a quick glance around the room , no witnesses, phew. The smile in which shines with great light this could be the crowning moment , no rushing into it , play it coy , small talk is incited, the cold drinks are not alone in sweating , liking , love , romance , and adventure are marbles rolling around in ones head , just stand there blankly and stew Sudennly the answer that one is looking for is about to be revealed, like watching and hearing some one read a harlequin romance novel in slow motion , bending a close ear , soft words are spoken , heart is pumping, head throbbing, an almost premature celebration, for not to be only delusions grandeur , head take a bow You are beautiful and very desirable and fun , spew out like alphabet soup , here it comes it’s not you it’s me banter, in a complete dumbfounded response that special some one take up the libation to quench there pallet and with worried eyes and a single tear cascaded down the cheek , I’m a same sex person , feeling small now No judgement, no indignities were to be considered, only more love , admiration and respect , is exuded with an ardent embrace for the immense courage that was lauded on the line , what it must of been like , in ones vanity begets humility Many years of well earned well cherished of life’s great virtues friendship , yes one can have undeniable, in retorted mutual platonic love for one another, it’s out there , find it relish it , never to be encumbered by it , this is if not ever so honest it’s the vested truth, civility, compatibility
