Enjoying the Ride

Everytime a potential lover
enters the picture,
I get overly excited.


They sense my desperation
and quickly exit the scene,
leaving me heartbroken.


This time I'm taking it slow,
letting the man lead
in this dance of courtship.


I am not getting my hopes up
in the fear they will be dashed,
I'm just living in the moment.


I'm hoping for a happy ending
but not expecting anything,
just enjoying the ride.
