FB Dilemma

Staring at the flashing names
Waiting for the green mark to come

Active 1 minute ago

Missed the chance
Maybe later,
Again

The waiting game is on,
But do you have the courage to start
a conversation?

Love Story 101

Nonexistent
No one took a risk

Some wanted it ASAP
Others later,
Never

But fear took over

Step one

Miss the chance
A love story remains
Hidden,
Slowly being forgotten
