Subtleties & Nuances

It’s not often the girl behind the counter wears make up, even if it is only subtle foundation that is offset by cherry lips and smoky eyes. The funny thing is the apple of her eye hasn’t even noticed the minor effort she has made.

As I watch her eyes subtly glance over hoping to catch his it make me smile. The young dance of a woman trying desperately to catch any attention she can, while as always, her counterpart is completely oblivious to it all.

Is it any wonder people stay alone when they are either obvious to the obvious body language or too scared to simply say the words “I like you.”. The human condition is a simple one, most people want to find another person to do human things with, perhaps they may even love them in time too.

Such a shame that everyone always misses the subtitles and nuances.
