Awkward Setting
Awkward Setting

The man sits at the table
Questioning his thoughts
Finding weird the setting
On one side is that one lady
Someone who broke his heart and more
About this often he’s fretting

So many words spoken
Yet more promises broken
She looks to him with more desire
She doesn’t know what to say
He is really quiet
She wants him to revisit the fire

Yet, he is shocked again and motionless
Wondering what to do next
And unsure the direction to go
“She had her chance,” his heart remembers
Could have had it all
That chance she did blow

He doesn’t make a move
Just waits for her decision
And wonders if it’s a mistake
Now, he heads home alone
Filled with memories and jitters
And revisited feelings begin to bake

Why couldn’t that year have been better
With filled promises, joy
And the cuddles and great kisses good?
Confusion and a burning heart set in
Unsure of some choices made
With few who truly understood

Awkward is an understatement
The setting brings him chills
Unable to be really free
Yet, the man loves those smiles
He loves the thought of potential
And the unknown future to be

Synopsis
One of my favorite pieces thus far... this piece took me into a different poetry writing format... not just the ABCB rhyming style that I seem to prefer!
