Topic: The Things She'd Never Say

by Jason Wardell

Every night I see her
I know she must see me
She always winks and blushes
Passed by the lobby

She lingers in my memories
At night, when I'm alone
We'd quickly be together
Were she to grab her phone

Why must a seperation
Of five hundred feet or less
Be so absurdly painful
And leave me in distress?

So I clutch my arm and wonder
Should I confront or wait?
My heart would break forever
If at Village Inn, she ate.

Woe to this lonely waiter
With the waiting game to play
Softly, "I'd like to place an order."
The words I thought she'd never say.

Author's Note: Here's the scoop. Ashley Caise gave me this challenge, which I completed at work. I work in a Holiday Inn restaurant. No, not a true story... just something my mind was amused by.
