Original Poems

MIssed Connection

He liked her
And she liked him
But —

She was afraid
Of being used physically
By a man
Who wasn’t really interested in her
Emotionally.
She thought:
That’s just what men do

He was afraid
Of being used emotionally
By a woman
Who wasn’t really interested in him
Physically.
He thought:
That’s just what women do

And they each interpreted the other’s actions
As proving their own theories

Even though they both liked each other
Physically
And
Emotionally

Original Poems

Un-Bridged

Bixby Bridge

It was “a bridge too far,” she thought
Not quite sure what that meant

As she moved on to others, where
Her time was better spent

Meanwhile, he wondered what went wrong
To make her leave so fast;

That all his building just can’t forge
Connections that will last
