Afternoons Long Ago

Afternoons lazing.
No trail blazing.
Desultory chatter.
Dreams shatter.
An invitation.
A pale imitation of love.

You were mine to choose.
I chose to lose.
To lose what? My heart?
Best stick to art,
For if I start
I may impart
Too much.
For Dutch courage has led many a man to say
More than he meant to say.

The street
Where we did meet
Was a cul-de-sac.
Perhaps you yearned,
(We could have turned
Was it need,
Or something other
That led you to become a kind of lover?
