First Date – Poem

First Date:

watch check, it’s half-past
some things weren’t meant to last.
heart stops, is it you?
check phone, nothing’s new.
look around, read poster
emotional roller coaster.
look at feet, hands at play
close eyes, whisper, pray.
peek around, do I see?
maybe things are meant to be.
