A small moment in time


Sitting on the sofa,
talking with my date
at my friend’s party, and her
his ex-girl, who I’d asked to bring
fearing I’d offend. He insisted.
I should. They were finished.

What a friend

I felt like I loved her then
and was so involved, focused,
I lost track of time and place.
Minutes passed. They might
have been hours until at last
I leaned in to kiss her.

Lips. Soft, warm, slowly parting,
drawing me in.
Then applause
from my dear friend,
who, jealous, decided to mock me.
My dear friend with a need
to humiliate, shock me
in front of our peers,
all our other friends.

The clapping thundered,
and cheering began
I wanted to vanish,
never see them again,
but I watched as if from above
at that poor boy, and cried for his pain
at such a cruel jest,
having been so naive, and trusting
his friend, only to be betrayed
at a kiss in the end.
