Her Eyes Meet My Heart
I enter the room with a smile on my face; glance over, to find the matching smile across it. In an attempt for eye contact I was rejected, she turns away. My head straightens but the picture is already implanted. As I greet the people I intended to be my focus, all I can do is focus on her; making it harder to separate true interest from the chase. I am far from a hunter; my perfect ideal would be a huntress. My head begins to bop, as the music drowns out my thoughts. My peoples pull me on to the dance floor. I dance with five women in three songs; all five women were one, each song a dedication. I scanned the room in search of my connection, but my heart beat was never detected. I sorted through face after face; walked through the whole place. The crowd was empty and full of mystery. Until she appeared; I slowly approached her. “Hello, your smile has embraced me the moment I arrived”. She said, “So why are you just now getting to me, once I am ready to leave”? I asked, “Do you have to go”? She replied, “Nothing is forcing me to stay”. I said, “I don’t wish to force anything upon you, if my grace isn’t good enough than I could never trap you with my words, but if you like my tone than you will love my intention”. She said, Okay, I am listening”. I said, “All it took was a glare for me to focus. Several women expressed their desires, but I already felt I was taken. I came in single and was married two seconds in the door”. She laughed, “That’s a hell of a line”. I said, “If that is a line, then I guess the lie is what you want because the truth just happens to be a paragraph”. She said, “Your cute with words, how are you with being faithful”? My answer was, “As long as I have something to believe in, I will honor it until death do us part”. She said, “You’re so full of shit”. I said, “No, I just came out of the bathroom. Hahahaha. Is it that hard for you to believe that someone felt a connection and wants to truly connect”? She replied, “No, it’s hard for me to believe that a stranger can have so much passion from a glance”. I said, “When you see something you can feel, you want to see it and feel it for however long it’s present”. She said, “Well, I have to go, here is my number”. I said, “Thank you for a moment, if that is all this ever will be”. She said, “Call me”. I said, “What’s your name”? She said, “It’s on the paper”. I said, “Okay, I will call tonight because I want to see you tomorrow”. Joy rushed my heart! I fell in love and I will do everything in my power to maintain that feeling.
