A Fleeting Thought
by Jennifer L Banks
Why do you catch me like this?
In a moment I didnt expect.
Longing for a word from you
These moments I sit back and reflect
As I sift through many people
Always with something to say
My interest doesnt peak as much
Like as much as wondering how you are,
for a brief second, once a day.
Wandering through this Valley of men
Each one different and unique
Yet none of them can convince me to stop
Or look into their souls when they speak
So I wander through this dating scene
Seeing nothing that catches my eye
I guess Im always going to wonder
What I did and why no answer
These poems of mine seem to be
Part murky grey matter lament,
Some escapist contrived futility
Slivers of the inner me, per se, hell bent
Giving you every reason to stay away.
