Every day I meet you
in the Caterham train
I’m from Victoria
And you – from Rayners Lane?
I secretly admire you
I think you’re very nice
You haven’t really noticed
So how to break the ice
It’s been like this for weeks now
Can’t find the words to say
The few times that you looked at me
I blushed and looked away
One day I want to tell you
That I would like to meet
But not today, your station’s here
We are at Thornton Heath

What a wonderful poem. And, hey, why don’t you break the ice by asking if he (or she?) has ever seen the elephant on the underground? http://www.animalsontheunderground.com/bird.html
If you don’t mind, I decide for myself whether it is fiction or not… ;-)
@Zazz – thank you and that is a very cool website ! I will have to have a good look at that one !
@Yak : where ?
Meter as in: ‘The measured arrangement of words in poetry, as by accentual rhythm, syllabic quantity, or the number of syllables in a line.’
@yak : Well, don’t think that I have given that a thought at all while writing this one, much too complicated for my brains :-)
My first proper girlfriend lived in Thornton Heath.
