A Crush... - Poem by Poornima Kanasen

Swept away from the reality,
Looking for the unspoken pleasure,
Gratifying my desires,

I come across him…
Those eyes threatening my soul,
In his absence, I speak of intimacy,

Waiting now seems more intriguing,
Yet, patience couldn’t be practiced,
A contradiction that can never satisfy many,
A dangerous one, indeed,
My unpredictability answers it,

His demeanor makes my cupidity to arise,
The smiles of his, the glances I stole from him,
Let me, let me imprison them in my heart,
Obsessed by his bearings,
A simple word of his means the world,
The solidity in me over claimed by questionability,

I have not made my way on a flight of fancy,
He isn’t an exaggeration, he is the whispers,
I hear them too often, as my heart beats each time,

I venture through my eagerness,
I lay out all the odds…
Just to see him frown a little,

He entices me, ever tempting me,
To end the barriers and reach for him,

A crush isn’t hereby to remain,
Will he or will he not stay?
My short-lived infatuation….
