They stare at me whilst I stare at you,
A spark constantly burning, that was instantly lit,
A feeling so intense it engulfs your very spirit.
That passing touch that lingering glance,
Was it my imagination, was it just by chance,
The flight from within as he enters the room,
Him never knowing what it is he’s doing to you.
The remnant smile left upon my face
When he strides away with such poise and grace,
Laugh and joke as if as friends,
But this is not where the feeling ends.
His eyes and his speech have me locked in a spell
A hard time will follow I know all too well,
The wonder and promise of what could be,
If only the courage and words would come to me.
Not knowing if the answer be yes or no
And will it change this from what we know
The constant debate, if the gamble will pay
Or will I lose a friend, and blow it all away.
A risk laid to bed for another night
Say “I love you”, one day I might.
