Love at First sight!

Jingle Poetry - Pot Luck Monday -  Love and Romance ---http://jinglepoetry.blogspot.com/







Working two jobs was stressful
Stubborn me, had to move out
Situations made it hard to live at home
I became my own keeper and my own bill payer

Both jobs were tough, all day and all night on my feet
Moonlighting in a small tavern, made it fun
Many times during the night and since I had worked there
The door would open to someone, we exchanged a friendly smile or wave

And, then it happened.  The door opened, a man walked in casually.
Our eyes met, and I felt like I was hit by lightening. 
I tried to smile, but felt trembling
I was flustered and blushing.

Smiling as if he knew, he mouthed a sexy "hello"
I served him his Jack Daniels with a tremble
I could feel his eyes still on me.
What was this feeling?

Waiting on others, I offered veiled peeks
He was charming, though, not the type to bring home to mother
Long hair, moustache and a HARLEY!
Mother warned me about men like that.

I knew what the feeling was, 'Love at first sight'
It hit me like a ton of bricks, never did I dream it would happen to me
I was stunned.
What a feeling it was. Exhilirating, 


We dated for two years and over time the feeling dimmed
I cried on the inside because I missed that first emotion he gave me
Hating to admit this, though I will
Mother was right to warn me, about men like that!

  6. Such a sad ending for what seemed a promising beginning. Apparently 'love at first sight' isn't as infallible as it's usually made out to be. Nice honest piece, Wysteria.

  7. Sad but for the best. Honestly, I have NEVER had that feeling again. It does leave me thinking about him and how wonderful it was what he did give.

    Oh well... sometimes we just have to take a look at where we've been.

    Thanks for the note and stopping by..

  10. Uh huh, mum is always right...but we never, ever believe her. If we did, we would never have the experience of the 'one you can't take home to mum'. :)

    Wysteria, I loved the atmosphere you created - I was right there watching it all unfold.
