“Going underground”…

~

Searching for love,
deep underground…

Where nobody speaks,
or makes a sound…

Just looking for signs,
across the way…

Or body language,
with something to say…

Showing some interest,
perhaps just a smile…

And capture a glimpse,
that lasts for a while…

Creating a memory and
filling the hole…

That exists within,
each poor tortured soul…

Who dare not speak,
or express their desire…

Meaning most flirtations,
will always misfire…

And end in moments,
of pitiful regret…

The day their challenge,
refused to be met…

And the courage needed,
just to say hello…

Was found wanting,
by the reluctant hero…

Walking away with,
the spirit of the stairs…

Wondering what could have been,
had it been more than stares…

Before the next journey and
a new smiling face…

Could this be the moment,
they win Cupid’s race…

As they search for love,
deep underground…

Where nobody speaks,
or makes a sound…
