The coffee shop was quiet
Much quieter than last week
When I last saw her,
Which was also the first time
But in those seven days
She has filled my every thought
I have haunted the coffee shop everyday
But I haven't seen her again
And today once more
There is no sign of her
I should ask the waitress
But what would I say
"Have you seen that girl?
She was here a week ago
The girl who was sat there
In that easy chair
The girl with the chestnut hair
In a pixie cut, have you seen her"?
How ridiculous would that sound?
She would think me mad
Or worse a stalker
Maybe if I told her about her smile
A smile to brighten the darkest day
Or those green eyes
Hypnotic and mesmerising,
Or that soft velvet laugh
But no I would just sound creepy
So I order a coffee instead
And sit in her corner
Drinking my coffee
While pondering my insanity
"Do you mind if I join you"?
A voice halted my musings
It was her, my quarry
She was here and she was speaking to me
"Absolutely, please do"
I replied rather pompously
"I love this corner" she said
"I like to sit and watch the world go by"
We exchanged a smile
But now she was actually here
I was speechless and my head was spinning
And I felt a little guilty
For stalking her like prey
Then, in a soft easy tone
She spoke again, which put me at my ease
"Didn't I see you in here last week?"
I am a fifty something family man with a passion for writing and I draw inspiration from those around me.
