A Funny True Incident - Poem by Debra Masky
On the bus stop I stood today
waiting for the bus
but lost in the thoughts of you
I was lost in a conversation with you - I imagined
'Hi where are you?
I am in Media city
do you want to see me
Yes I want to talk to you
Is it serious about my work or personal?
Oh don’t worry just come.
deep in thoughts of you
I smiled and turned back
To, see the bus go by me,
Oh no I said another bus I miss
What I do, but start walking back home,
I reached a junction so engrossed about you
and your smile that drives me crazy
I cross the road and into the parking
and across into the building
I reach the lift and press the second floor
On reaching the floor,
I go to flat 209 and try to open the door
I find the door locked so I ring again, but no reply
I ring the bell once more and
There was lady at the door looking at me
In awe I ask her “Who are you”?
She replies this is my house
Oh no I was too shocked
I, asked her back isn’t this 209, she said yes
But which building do you live in
That’s when I realized I was in the wrong building
I look across and find something strange but not true
I apologized and walked back to the lift
I come down and walk across
and find my building
Oh my gosh what have I done
I reached an unknown building
So now you see what your charming smile
and your charming ways have done to me
What shall I do and where shall I go
How am I supposed to tell this to you?
that I am so crazy about you.
