We met on OKCupid.
Our conservation went nowhere.
I was tired of being alone and asked if she wanted to hang out.
We walked around CityPlace with longing eyes that said
Someone, anyone, please stay.
Our conversation was worse than before
Year ago, my grandpa’s heart gave out when I was mowing his lawn.
I never got to tell him I loved him.
The feeling of this date was much worse.
We finished walking and stopped at a park bench
I looked at the clock over the Pavlovian
A saw her hold back a tear.
I’m going to go home, I said.
She grabbed my arm and looked at me with those same eyes.
I’m Sorry I said.
Then next day I deleted my profile.
I’d rather be alone.
