much

it was love at first sight
that's what I thought.
I anticipated much-
river of emotions
to flow in between.

"but he was so enthralled by
friday night football"

Two football games yesterday on T.V.! Three more months of this sillyness! Sometimes it makes my head spin. Great take on the prompt!!

Sue said...

Haha, I empathise with that footballing lover of yours!
Nice punchline to finish that off, very neat.

In the early days of infatuation, or football or anything you can to love, then something else.

Willow said...

LOL, so true…but lots of time to read and write poetry, when the game is on.

Sandra said...

:D lol!!! Awesome!

I in fact recalled a conversation between some of my friends when I was in college. A friend got a date from a pretty looking girl. On the same day we had a match, a football match. The match got extended and poor him, alas in the joy of victory forgot about the date!

BTW you got a very clean and nice blog! I liked it!

I love it all, but especially that last line!

anitamombanita said...

like it!...well, except the disappointed outcome perhaps. :(

Jim said...

Right on Tami! I just went through that this afternoon with Mrs. Jim!

She had the nerve to ask me to help her find something (a picture of a grandkid) when my team was behind seven points and only four minutes remained in the game.

That is too bad...love interrupted by football. Nicely written.

It seems the way with men and football!

Nanka said...

World class sports and T.V coverage can be fascinating, and one catches it like virus :D

Nonna Beach said...

Good one...I hadn't even thought about this perspective because I make it my 'alone time' when Hubs is into football.

Yes for many women a deal breaker but I just do what I want during football season, usually shopping, watching a movie, nap, whatever...

Ramesh Sood said...

River of emotions.

They are as powerful as the tide.
