A Valentine’s Day Cypher – Part 2

Continued from Part 1…

EDNA ::

The cool breeze blows away the last of light…
I look around and he is nowhere in sight…
I wasn’t ready for this. I wasn’t prepared for him not showing up.
As I go through the same ritual as every evening…
At my porch… watching as the beauty of sunset at last fade into dark…
Disappointment sets in,
Coating the last of day on my saddened heavy heart… This can’t be!
I must be dreaming….
No! this is just one of those fictionated almost real nightmares!
So I’ll go for a walk… just to clear my head.
Think… how to go on… collect my thoughts, clean out my closet of dreams, Hate the love I have for him…
I have to do something, or I’ll go crazy!
Rejection, rejection, rejection, my worst fear… a reality!?
Eyes fixed on the ground, lips quivering, balancing tears… sharp breath intakes… I walk on
Only when someone bumps into me do I look up…
And see him, coming towards me…
Looking uncertain… certainly looking at me…
HE CAME!

My heart speeds up the beat, frown turns up side down…
An easy laugh bubbles in my throat.. and in my head I do my happy dance…
I cannot describe this moment of pure euphoria…
Somehow my walk is different. Feminine. My step lighter. Lady-like.
As I shyly look up and see the appreciative look in his eye…
He takes away any doubts that clouded my head…
How can such beautiful eyes see me?
How can such perfection be standing in front of me?
How can he stand there and not see what it is that he does to me?
I have lived this moment a million times before…
Only this time, it is real… only this time.
“hi,” I hear my traitor mouth…
I have to stop it before it speaks my thoughts to him.
So I hush and look at him expectantly…
He just stands there and looks at me…
Parts his o-so-luscious lips and says…

BOY ::

I have no words, yet I use words to say that…
I have no power, yet I use strength to admit that…
Love is blind, yet my eyes cannot second that…
You stand before me, and you say those two letters, the shortest word… just what I need to see your lips part.
I stand before you…
A scientist facing a complex equation,
A wingless bird facing the skies,
A finless fish taking the deathly plunge,
A hopeless romantic,
A penless writer,
A chord-less guitarist…
…and I can’t help but wonder…
…I can’t help but ask you…
How do I win your heart?
Where’s the path that leads to your soul?
The map to the treasure within?
Should I become a thief at midnight…. Hovering under the starlight…to steal that heart from you?
Should I become a hunter in this jungle…. Laying traps for you to stumble…until you fall into my expectant arms?
Should I be a conqueror…. Sweeping all standing in my way in terror…to bind your heart in unbreakable chains?
Maybe… Just maybe… If I could be these things…then your love would be mine.
But you see girl…
I am not a thief, I cannot steal what’s not mine.
I am not a hunter, I can’t trap what should be free.
I am not a conqueror, your heart I cannot bind..,
I am just a man.

JUST A MAN.
Asking… How do I win your heart?

To be continued… (Watch out for Part 3 tomorrow)
