You encounter someone by chance
and surprisingly, there's a spark.
You can tell by the way he looks at you
because it feels like he's only looking at you.
You say your funny line, and yes
you know you've gotten his attention,
you know there's something there.
And as with every potential whatever
you later exchange polite smiles
and watch them walk away.
Secretly, I love leaving things as 'what ifs'.
They'll never get the chance to disappoint you
you'll never have a bad memory
and the night you had will always remain perfect.
And for things to stay beautiful for as long as they can
I hope we never meet again.
