Vacancy by Robert Hamill

She fit so easy, her head on his shoulder

They laughed. He revealed his hopes. She warmed with dreams

He gave his heart; though more than she desired.


Too intellectual, not romantic enough

Was that his fault?


A new she, athletic and jogger, the image of vitality

They listened to music, laughed at movies, and lay in arms.

Neither bothered with thoughts

That was too much to ask.


Until it was too late.
