Stood Up

Pretty Ugly
 
           Stood Up
 
Chilly our meetings
I see this our last
Seemed today sadly
I feel was disguised
Eagerly looking
This day to pass
Not a word
You decided otherwise
 
Appointed days
Now casually drop
Chilly our meetings
I feel this our last
More no-show excuses
Say who cares a rap
Certainly this day
Had come to a pretty pass

Things happen. Getting stood up, yes. Dated a few you're bound to get stood up at least once maybe a couple. Real ugly waiting time. Ugly thoughts whirling above your head. Excruciating! And on Valentine's Day! Aargh! I said something wrong! Again!

Awe! Don’t know how any respectable lady could do that to such a nice friend like you? Her loss!

@J Ann Crowder : Thank you Jenifer. I couldn’t be nicer than you. And I love you for that. And for your love of poetry.

Hope someday to meet you but that seemed to be an impossibility. I am just glad that we in this circle are communicating and loving it, our passion, poetry.

I know how you feel. I've been stood up up times myself. I have a nice friend now. She is real nice to me.

It's always a good feeling when the table for two you reserved would have two people sharing it. Please say hello to your friend for me. Thank you reading.

Been disappointed a few times as a teen. A few I have captured in verse - I posted one here called "The Angel in Blue Jeans" LOL

There are times when a gin martini with friends could brighten things up with tales of conquests prior to the "easy prey" encounter. :--)) . With you Brod. Thanks for the like.

@Nelson D Reyes: I just posted a poem loosely based on my experiences while at UP, called the Kissing Booth. Enhanced for dramatic effect naturally.
