One Minute Romance

more than one lifetime to forget

By Brenton FPublished 5 months ago Updated 5 months ago 1 min read

jammed in the train with so many others

i looked up and saw you standing there

it was either lean on or be leaned on

standing only, no empty seats anywhere

you looked up and caught my gaze

the softest smile lit your face

at first i though it couldn’t be me

i felt almost out of place

upon realising you knew i knew

you shyly looked away

you looked back and then i knew

something passed between us both that day

totally above board and respectable

we knew and understood the inevitable

something warm, bold, cool and special

something totally, completely unforgettable

we wined and dined in my imagination

we danced and beamed, heated infatuation

this will never lead to my heart or to my bed

it’s just a one minute romance in my head

we whispered together behind our commuter faces

as we courted each other with our eyes

i took your hand and you looked at me and said

this is just a one minute romance in my head

and to this day i still see your smile

every time i board a train

if i’m feeling sad i’ll take a bus instead

cause i still got that one minute romance in my head

    Brenton, this is definitely one of your better poems. I love the imagery and thoughtfulness. I can feel the connection the mc had there, even if only in his own head. Fantastic work my friend.

    "just a one minute romance inside my head." I like that phrase. I do that a lot. Nothing to ever act on, just as you said- a one minute romance inside my head.
