The Longest Minute - Poem by Jason Murak

Waiting, for eons it seemed
I was fantic, this moment didnt play out how I dreamed
Quick, painless
But right now, Im brainless
Im amazed at the fact that right now Im saying this
It was dark out
The game was over, I waited up
I could have been cool and said a simple 'Hello'
But Im standing here and my arms and legs feel like Jello
Mellow Out say my friends
Im on the spot, under the lens
I open my mouth but my tongue depends
On my brain, which right now wont work
I close my mouth and give an embarrassed smirk
Ive yet to say a word
By now you think Im a goof
Im flooded with thoughts
Should I just say the truth?
...'This... this is my mini van'
Thats it? Thats all I could say?
Your looks plus yourself just blow me away
That first exchange.. a sentence i could not finish
The time I met you was the greatest and longest of minutes
