Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Another Fading Valentine
 
Winded . . .
jogging the shoreline past knee high surf
shirt sullied
front to back
like Jack Frost at recess in the noonday sun

Huffing an extra moment
while puffing the lakeside air
Musing at your approach
gazing puppet-like
to your breath-robbing stride

Enticing
yet demure
you side-step surf
framed with endless sand and comber wave

Passing within a smile's length
Synchronizing your intended dance
with a smiling glance

Only. . .

You're met with silence
while the sounds of surf
gently fade below the pulse in my throbbing chest

My one line arsenal
timorous
left home by the mirror

My response ?

A sheepish urge to flip driftwood
with an idle foot

Another potential Valentine
swept away
like the water erasing your steps

The drifting wood
strikes my unguarded ankle
