Eating Love

by Suzanne Baran

He was alone, sought a girl with brown eyes and a light touch. But then she fell for his heart which no one touched much. Too cerebral, she pined for emotive love but he found her and put his aorta on a plate with capers. It wasn't enough to satiate her growing appetite. Dinner's over and now her stomach's full, but her loins are empty. Expectations can spoil a good meal, a pure heart, and a relationship.
