Eyes


Walking briskly down the hall,
A crowd of people, here I try not to fall.
A brief moment I cast my eyes forward.
As fate would have it, I am the one you are walking toward.
Time slows as we make the connection,
And I am scared and excited with great complexion.

There I see your heart and soul
I cannot read you easily; you have many parts to your whole.
You are conflicted, I can tell.
And now that I am constantly under your spell,
Why do you only speak this way?
It is hard to look up every day.
Maybe I am over analyzing,
But it still doesn't explain why your look is paralyzing.
I do not know the color or shade,
But we both have friendly smiles, and then they fade.

We break the connection and I see a strange sight.
As if you just might-
Hesitate and say hello or something.
You don't and that is just the thing.
We already pass, I should have said hi.
When I look up my mouth is dry,
I continue to ponder what might have happened if I did.

    Sounds like you had a love at first site experience. There is no point in wondering what could have happened as you can never go back to it. Even if you wanted to. Maybe you meet this person again and you will be able to take advantage of the situation the way you want to. I wish you luck on your search. Stay strong (Report) Reply
