nonchalant love

nonchalant love

A Chapter by Lyn Anderson
"

another 10 words challenge

"
I saw you staring
at that scrawny girl,
unnecessarily undressing her
with your eyes;
thanks to the rain,
there was little left
to the imagination  --

and eminent though
you are to me,
I doubt such a
sweet young thing
would find you tasty --
or give you so much
as a whiff of her perfume --

you may think
me reckless
with your affection,
but your minor flirtation
I take with
a generous pinch
of salt ---

puzzled at my
nonchalant air,
you wonder
if my love be true.
you never paused to think,
she was looking back at me,
not you.

It is always an experience for me the way you use the video to enhance your writing. This video catapulted me back in time...my goodness.
I love to read what you write with these challenges! It is fun to see what each writer will come up with, and I have found it stretches me a bit. That first stanza is so vivid and sets the stage for the scene and the thoughts that come forth. I love the way you take the situation and turn it around. Wonderful job!

There is no way I would be able to keep it PG. I applaud you :)
So beautifully crafted the imagery is quite vivid.
Those 10 words never looked so good!

I love the ending...weaving the path meant for another.

wow, reminds me of the episode of Person of Interest monday night with Root and Shaw and their little sizzle of passion...all the males on the show gawk at both of them...but where does the interest really lie for them?

we fool ourselves and make fools of ourselves so often when we flirt ....and naturally assume it will be reciprocated ...:)))
