Met 2 girls

by Greg Williams

Met 2 girls tonight,
sorta on a whim,
heard them yelling at me from across the street,
thought I’d cross and talk to them.
“Wanna go to a movie?
Leaving right now...”
I was trying to think of a way to bring myself to do it,
but failed to succeed somehow.
Standing there it seemed inhibitions set in,
I was excited inside for the first time in ages,
but alas in a world of games I never seem to win.
“Sorry, love to but have to work right now,
gotta run home and finish my dinner then head out”
Sadly the truth, things to be done,
they begged me to go grab my bike,
but I claimed to not have one.
Depressed inside I knew I had to go,
would it have been a good night?
Well I guess I’ll never know.
They started to ride off,
“maybe next time!”
I apologized, said I hoped they had a good movie,
now suddenly after briefly smiling for once,
all I have to think of is that offhand moment,
and regret blowing the chance to make some new friends,
wondering if another such opportunity will ever come to me.
