Love Actually? Poem

Love Actually?


Sitting in a little beat up Chinese restaurant we stumbled upon

Because we both couldn't make up our minds about where to eat 

Starting on opposite sides of the booth, the restaurant busy 

We talk 

You’re intrigued and i'm fascinated 

And the time flies by

You're now on my side 

Head tipped back as you smile 

I want to hear about your world 

Want to know what you believe 

And I spill my secrets 

I thought I would always keep 

The waiter comes by and asks us to leave

It's closing time 

And they think we are annoying 

Or maybe too happy 

But we stumble out 

Laughing, grabbing our coats 

And you say something like 

“You should probably head home”

And I sigh and I realize that it's probably true 

But I grab your hand and pull you away 

Along the tiny shops under the moon

Because yes I should go and I'll hear about it the next day 

But all I could think in that moment is 

“I want to stay.”
