She was nervous
Finger sweating, breath shaking, face twitchingly nervous
He was nervous
Multiple changing, hand shaking, voice crackingly nervous
Deep breath, remain calm.
He was late
Lost in google maps, was warned but didn't listen, he was nervous
She was late
Still finding an outfit, and spraying perfume, she was nervous
She was slouched
In the theatre, sinking into the seats, still nervous
He was slouched
In pain, aching back but wanting to close the gap, still nervous
He saw her hand
Sprawled open on her lap, ready for taking, maybe she’s shaking, is she nervous?
She saw his hand
So close yet so far away, just out of reach, why won’t he take it, is he nervous?
She took a sharp breath and he took his chance,
No longer nervous.
