I met an old friend today

“Oh my god!” was all I could say

Standing there looking at me

Like there is no one in the world but you and me

Gazing at me with a half smile on his sinful lips

While I stared back, wiping my sweaty palms on my hips

Dewey eyes with that telltale glint

Complimented by my “Deer in headlights clear the path i am about to sprint” look

As he took what I can only term as a determined step

I turned to run but of course stumbled into a mistep

As i was hoping the sidewalk would engulf me

Guess who has to catch me

“Oh hi there, how have you been?”

Said like he was the person I was hoping to have seen.
