Denial

By: 1000th Ghost

How was she?

Did she remember him?

Did she care?

Had she ever?


Lazy afternoons,

Tennis and golf,

And checkers.

Oh, checkers!


Why had she cried?

He couldn't stand it.

He kissed her.

She didn't mind.


But not on the lips!

Oh, no!

That would be unheard of.

Friends didn't do that.


They stayed that way

Seemingly forever.

Close to love,

But nowhere near.


Now, off to the movies!

Nothing had happened.

Just friends.

Content with denial.
