DISREGARDED DESTINY
(9/2/18)

they
were both
there
by accident

omissions

oversights

had disrupted
their day

now
they looked
around
on this
unscheduled stop

thinking
of things
still needed

until
they saw
each other

recognizing
the look
in those
meeting eyes

they were
so very much
the same

so
very much
attracted

they nodded

passed by

did their
shopping

and each
went home
alone

wishing
they had
said something

recognizing
a once
in a lifetime
opportunity
missed

then shrugging
the situation
away

resuming
their comfortable
lives
of isolation

with no
regrets
