fill in the blanks

by J.J. Campbell

stealing glances
underneath street
lights, soulful
music blasting
in the night air

i know you can't
be happy or you
wouldn't be

and just as i
muster up the
courage to slip
you my number
as your boyfriend
wasn't looking

the lanky geek
took your hand
and pulled you

off into the dark
for who knows

i had just spent
the last ten hours
standing, baking
in the sun,
listening to

a pursuit was
definitely not
in the cards

i'll let my
fill in the
blanks of
what could
have been
