A Dazed State From Your Eyes


It's so weird
how this feeling came to be
All you've ever been to me was a friend
a friend so trustworthy
yet in the light when I see your face
something stops me for a moment
a silent pause
At night, it feels like the stars light up your eyes
fixed in a daze only to realize
you're still standing there waiting
for me to say something
or just stop staring
Unknown it remains
Anyway it's all the same
afraid to say it in person
of course for the obvious reasons
Fear of what you would say
accompanied by the thought of
have you already figured it out
Maybe the thought of you crosses my mind
every once in awhile
as the moon follows the walking sun
Can this be done
Are you willing to see a different side of me
Will you take my hand and accompany me
to see a world I call my own
something I never showed anyone

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
