Am I Staring?


am I still staring?
sorry but
I cannot help it
I find you
beautiful

and

somehow deeper than that
because
the way I stare at you
feels like a memory of your skin
smooth dark chocolate
velvet
like sin
and your smile
even more beautiful than
your sensual grin

I can imagine
what its like
to be on the
receiving end
of your smile
your gaze

and by the way
you have beautiful eyes

and

did you know that
you lips
sometimes curl on 1 side

and

I find myself wondering what
its like to know
what all of your facial expressions mean

like

sometimes
before I fall asleep
I daydream
and
your face is there
watching my hand play
with my pubic hair

picturing
your eyes, your sexy grin
and those lips
did I mention your butt
your thighs
and those blackman hips
and just imagining
what they can do
can make a girl
lose her grip

in reality

because after all

you don't even know me

i tried to talk to you once
but
I'm kinda shy

like

how do you even tell a man
you've been thinking of him
ever since your first view of his face
and
am I supposed to say
can you spend a night
or three
at my place
because
I want to understand your body
your soul
and that
sexy ass grin

how does a conversation like this even begin
besides
this package doesn't even come close to a perfect 10, cause I watch you watch the girls as they come in and your eyes light up when they are pretty and thin
and no need to start something which is already at the end

like this poem

well
never mind
I'll just continue to stare
and
think of you
as my hand moves past
my pubic hair
