“Lost Opportunity” ©️C.P. Hickey 2019
She was attractive in an unconventional way.
I surprised myself by realizing it was all I needed.
Big boned magnificent.
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.”
