A Poem about That Feeling of Butterflies

The moment you walk toward her you suddenly seem aware of your swinging arms

You try to conceal this awkward fact unaware that she finds that part of your charm

Wait a beat before an embrace trying to time the release

As you walk side by side trying to imagine what she sees

Eyes glancing every which way trying to form some sort of connection

The footsteps echoing loudly from the silence of a cynical confession

You slide your hand into hers hoping to not be rebuke

The tension of your body is more powerful than a juke....box

Not wanting the moment to end but knowing it may not last

How could one look into the future when they worry about the past

She says something quietly and you suddenly awake with a start

You look at her questioningly trying to read her heart

She smiles and repeats it more loudly this time

You fall silent as those words crash against your ears acting like a mime

You wait a beat to reply

"Yeah I'd like to see you again too"




...until the next time
