Movie Romance

heartbreak

By Luke McCann

It doesn’t always happen like in the movies.

Hair darkened and flattened by the rain, eyes full of hope. Words rehearsed into his heart. “If not now, when?” She’ll be afraid. He won’t have answers, but his heart will be determined. One kiss and she’ll know.

At her doorway, hands dry from the rain but damp with sweat. Heart in his throat. Finger on the buzzer. Eyes up. Her window. A face. Not hers.

It doesn’t always happen like in the movies.
