The Attention Seeker

By Leonard Pigg

Her eyes made me want to look better
I wanted to walk taller, stride deeper
To have that attention on me
Such fortune set before me
To have her ear attuned to me
Whisper secrets and jokes in my sexy voice
All the things some folks take for granted
Were the items I treasured
I knew what it was to be alone
To be lost in the nadir of ambivalence
Suddenly, a muse is there with my heart in her hands
She won it fair and square
I just hope she doesn't squander it
