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.

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
