I know I shouldn’t because you’re taken
But that smile, that face, and your kindness
Have me thinking about you
More than I should,
More than I want to–
Sitting next to you in class
Have you noticed?
Did you notice?
You asked if you were blocking my view
I wanted to say, “No. I enjoy looking at you;
Seeing your lovely, inquisitive eyes,
And that perfectly groomed face
Is the highlight of this day. Every day.”
I couldn’t say this for shyness held my tongue
So instead, I acted like it was no big deal,
But inside my heart skipped a few beats:
Right then, I wanted to ask if you were free,
Wanted to see if friends we could be,
But none of the words could I utter
For your speaking to me set my mind on pause.
I learned that you aren’t available,
So I decided not to covet you
Your beauty catches me off guard,
Sometimes stunning me to silence.
