The Night We Met

(A Villanelle Poem)

 .

.

The night we met was purely happenstance.

Within a booth she quickly caught my eye,

When I shyly walked up and asked to dance.

.
I was broken, not looking for romance.

Her girlfriends dragged her out, not knowing why.

The night we met was purely happenstance.

.
The need for love gave two lost souls a chance.

Though failed before, it’s not too late to try,

When I shyly walked up and asked to dance.

.
I desperately  gave a  “come on” glance,

Surprised when I found out that she’d comply.

The night we met was purely happenstance.

.
Elated with reply to my advance,

Across the floor our sparking bodies fly,

When I shyly walked up and asked to dance.

.
This month we celebrate the years gone by,

The thirty eight our joined loves signify.

The night we met was purely happenstance,

When I shyly walked up and asked to dance.

.
