Proposal(s)

In the elevator
there is a man
whom I've known for long
six years I think
we make small talk
here and there either
up or down
he proposes that I should
go out with him ... I say no
In the elevator
there is a young man
maybe 30 or so, he speaks
French
he is from the 12th floor
we have talked since he moved
in, nice guy and all
he proposes that I should go out
with him
but I have been saying no for
six years, but he persists
got to give him credit, but it's
a no
On the street I walk
to meet a handsome French guy
as I walk a guy yells at me
"you are just the girl that I've been
looking for"
I turned not sure if he was talking
to me but he is
and in a crumpled piece of paper
gives me his number, please call
but I tossed the paper in the recycling
bin to not be use ever again
Another day in a
the corner I wait for the light
to turn green so I can cross
a man stands besides me
"you are the most beautiful woman
I have ever seen" out of the blue
he says
he proposes that I should also
take his number and call but I don't
Then an E-mail from a friend
"I've been in love with you
for six year maybe more"
How do you respond or not?
I choose not to because as of today
all proposal(s) have change
everything

Drenched

We laid under the sun
for God knows how long
the wind blew our hair
touched our faces
and caressed our bodies
with the warmth of the
sea
The sand under our feet
felt good
as usual there was no
care in the world
just you, the ocean and I
We were drenched by the
sun
The clouds suddenly
came in from nowhere
to be seen
they came storming
with the wind and
darkness covered the blue
sunny sky
We packed up and left
silly me wearing only
my sandals and shorts
and we started to walk
when we turned the corner
we saw
the sky had started to
fall down on us
drip by drip
tear by tear
drop by drop
tick, tick, tick
on the pavement, on the tree
branches above
it came with fury
then it just dropped
like buckets of water
raining from the sky
we kept on walking
as if nothing
while everyone else
had disappear and taken covered
under the trees or a roof's eave
we kept on walking
our teeth chattered
and our bodies trembled
We were drenched
from head to toe
it was so much fun
and we still
laughed and walked
just as casually
as if were not
even
drenched
by the falling
rain
