You look at me
I look at you.
You smile at me
And I do too.
You look away, which I impute
Is down to me.
You’re kinda cute.
You look back up, your smiles unfurls
My heart does ballerina twirls.
Electrically, you shuffle in.
Your smile could cause a saint to sin.
Your searching eyes, they pierce right through
I’m now neck-deep in your gaze too
To which my breath has no escape
My heart it whispers, “Listen, wait.”
Then you lean down close to my ear
And whisper… but did I mishear
The compliment that you just paid
Was not for me, but for that jade!
I see her… and she’s mesmeric!
But you moved from ME pretty quick…
That’s not what I thought you would say
I should have got a play-by-play
Deep down, I wished that you’d see me
What you had called her, lovely
I will not play this game with you,
I will not guess, just tell the truth
I’m running circles, can’t you see
The impact that you have on me?
I give up.
