The awkwardness and building of nerves
but backing out now would be absurd.
Questioning decision made
adrenaline rushing quickly makes indecision fade.
Appearance surely shouldn’t be top
humour and kindness count for a lot.
shallow I must definitely be
as I still hope and want to like what I see.
Worrying now about their height
and whether from description they’re recognisable on sight.
what if they change their mind on me
and turn around instinctively.
It might turn out to be the perfect time
a connection made whilst sharing the wine.
go with the flow and come what may,
at the end of the date you can always walk away.
