She’s sitting there playing the guitar

He is staring at her

Like he’s never heard her play

Though he is the one that taught her.

I interrupt their magic

With my nonsense.

Sitting at a party

I see a couple

So wrapped up in one another

It is like nobody else is there

Until I announce

It is time to eat

Then they have to acknowledge

There are other people

On the planet.

Two people

Sitting at a concert

Wrapped in a blanket

In such an embrace

You cannot tell one from the other

I stand there looking at them

Wondering why

I cannot have that.
