Those Awkward Moments - Poem by Melissa Joy Chesky

I live for
those awkward moments.

Where you look
at that one person for a while,
and they turn towards you,
and you're in their thoughts-
for a second at least-
but you quickly look away
at something other than them.
And still you manage
to keep them in your sights.

Where you play fight
with them for a while,
and you realize through your
unisoned laugh,
that you happen to be holding each other;
hand in hand,
or just completely enfolded in one another.
What seemed so natural before
you skirt away from when its noticed.
And you quickly break away.

When you sneak
a coy smile,
your inner feelings finally
showing through to the world,
and they know it's because of them.
So you quickly swipe it
from their view,
holding true emotion hostage, again.

And it's not the
normal moments
I remember,
but the awkward ones.

I never really forget.
They never really leave
my thoughts.

I live for
those awkward moments....
I really love
those awkward moments.
