Spineless - Poem by Brian Hinckley

I sit back
slowly drinking my coffee.
I watch the people
go to and fro.

Suddenly the world freezes,
like a sudden photograph.
She walks into view
and with her comes my fear.

I watch her from afar,
scared to even say hello.
She controls my heart,
yet she doesn't know I exist.

I sigh and sip my coffee,
content in my thoughts.
She would never go for me,
she is way out of my league.

She leaves the room
and time begins again.
Another heartbreak averted;
another love lost.
