“Train Crush”

“Lost Opportunity” ©️C.P. Hickey 2019

“Train Crush”

She was attractive in an unconventional way.

I surprised myself by realizing it was all I needed.


Big boned magnificent.

Exuding softness.

And, depth.

Reading an important book.

Curiosity ran roughshod through my veins.

The gravity she contained pulled me past being a conscionable being.

I channeled the gumption to open my mouth.

Before I uttered a word,

She said, “Hi.”
