The Man in a Blue Car
It's the perfect time of year
when winter visitors return
to the valley of the sun.
She was alone in the house,
the perfect time of day
to brew a cup of espresso
and pick up the binoculars.
She sang along with the radio...
"I'm still alive but I'm barely breathin'
I'm falling to pieces...when a heart breaks,
no, it don't break even..."
With hope in her eyes,
she recalls their introduction,
He appeared to be the mysterious type;
acccepting her offer of pumpkin pie
and whipped cream with suspicion.
She wipes the tiny red specks from
the lenses and turns the dial to focus.
Hmmm...I think my new neighbor
is a member of the CIA.
She admits, these are just lies I have told to myself
to pique my curiosity in the man in a blue car.
With a giggle she muses, well he could very well be
a true romantic...dark and mysterious on the outside
but soft and gooey on the inside.
...just to hold one another
That thought sends a dull throb through
all four chambers of her heart.
She pulls the reins hard and stops the run away horse
with the familiar words...
"when a heart breaks, no it don't break even"
She refuses to allow herself the luxury of a wild imagination,
So with binoculars in hand she zooms in on
the man in a blue car.
She was met by another pair of binoculars focused on her.
She blushed, smiled, and gave him a wink.
Today is just for living...
ahhh Life...the best is yet to come!
Author's Notes:
thank you, Barbara for these words and phrases that made up your word bank:
dull throb          alone in the house        the man in a blue car           hope in her eyes
gave him a wink       red specks          lies I have told to myself          to hold one another
today is just for living
I  embraced them with humor...and with a genuine positive spirit in which I feel they were given...
thanks Barbara!

I've noticed around here lately the word banks are turning into phrase banks.  I tried one and couldn't do it.  You did a really good job with yours and held it all together until the very end.

skillful execution of a challenging word bank - your skills continue to impress!

I like the ending..Reminds me of a song from the fifties..."You were cute as you could be, standing looking back to see if I was looking back to see if you were looking back at me." :o)...len

This was difficult to understand until I read the end a pipe dream is all it was.
