(Swans - December 28, 2009)  

Her eyes and her smile made me feel happy and made me want to smile too.

So we exchanged a few of these amongst a whole battery of eye contact.

At the time I remember thinking "how amazing" that I might be arousing in her the same desire her presence was stirring in me.

It's funny what lust does to us sometimes.

Very busty, but slim, I'd only been guessing that she must be about my own age, twenty-four, which she was.

She seemed a very bright, cheerful person, happy, and, to me, this was inviting.

If I'd had a rose, I would have given it to her.

That next morning she was all I could think about.
