I had no idea you wanted me to call

We never

kissed

in the hallway

 

You were a cheerleader

You dated football

basketball

and baseball players

 

Once you asked me

to call

I  thought you were being

friendly to a shy guy

 I  regret

I never called 

I did not think

I had a chance

to date you

  

I  still remember

laughing and talking

as we walked together

down the hallways

I was too shy

 

Connie,  let me know

if you

read this

I need

an ending

for this poem

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.

    1. Hi Ray, thanks so much for sharing. I was going to delete it tonight. But I saw you nice comment and decided to keep it. I don’t trust my writings, sometimes.

    Jim, I read this today and was reminded about poems without ending, those with delayed ending, and those with endings that live on through memories of a touch, a vision, a scent. Ray
