A Brief Relationship


We met nonchalantly at a mall,
Both shy and reserved at the start,
But other brief encounters came later
And overwhelmed my heart.

There is a relationship a man may botch
And moments where he often will try
To bid adieu with ardent kisses,
Express love and say good-bye.

We met nonchalantly at a mall,
Now with unfulfilled desire depart,
For I must move with undue haste
To overtake my heavy heart.
