FINDING THE ONE

I pretend not to notice or care.  That’s just life.  It happens.  I see you reading, messaging, answering, flirting, complimenting, spending time elsewhere and giving all your attention away.  I sit in the corner picking at my food wondering if you would notice if I stood to leave.  I watch as your eyes find pleasure…
