He held her hand in the shadows, in a nanosecond of half-crazed lust. She didn't notice, or if she did she attributed it to cheap champagne and a dash of almost evaporated romantic idealism.

Funny how soul mates (if you'll pardon the expression) brush past each other, never questioning the way people shuffle in and out of each other's lives. Boy meets girl, girl meets boy, boy and girl fall in love, girl realizes boy is too boyish and dumps him for a married man who advertises men's cologne and has no time for his five and a half year old daughter.

Love. It's an almost invariable idiosyncracy in the genetic sequence of the primates currently known as humans. Although modern emancipators may swear they're in it for the sex, we all have an innate urge to be adored.

Subject A walks into her apartment after an afternoon of mindless aeorobic activity carried out within the confines of a stale matress and a rickety kitchen table. The phone doesn't ring and it doesn't matter because she has her evening lined up in a decadent penthouse.

Subject B lingers in front of the mirror, searching for life in a hostile environment.

Seventeen years ago, Subject B tripped Subject A on the playground. Subject A pushed him into a puddle.

Were they meant to be?

Maybe.

But the past is fast gone and the could have beens don't matter.

The moral of the story?

There isn't one. There never is. Conclusions are always drawn by the objective observer and, let's face it, no one is entirely unbiased.
To those who have questioned the usages of ';past' and 'fast': There was indeed an error on my part. The line originally read "The fast is gone". After it was brought to my attention, I changed it.

Thank you to all who have viewed, commented, and favorited.

If you are reading this, bear in mind that I am primarily a poet. Feel free to read any of my other work, and please look at *Rhyme-and-Reason a poetry group headed by myself and *Penessence.

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-11-30
From the Journal of a Cynic by =tina-go-lightly I found to be not only enjoyable on several levels, but also written from a down to earth perspective that we can all relate to. ( Suggested by ChloroformBoy and Featured by LadyLincoln )
