A poem about the man I'm in love with and how he affects me
|Handsome man with the sparkling eyes,
He's inevitably going to be my demise.
Falling for him was such a sweet surprise,
Despite my fears of love's deceit and lies.
My stomach churns, heart in a race,
Just knowing it's time to see his face.
My legs feel shaky as I start to pace,
Head's swimming, thoughts lost in space.
Anticipation forces blood to my head,
My cheeks feel flush; burning and red.
Envisioning the warm embrace ahead,
Refraining from thoughts best left unsaid.
His laugh makes my body feel light,
Childlike giggles cause my face to ignight.
I can't help but fall for the beautiful sight
Of seeing his face so happy and bright.
My world gets smaller with him around,
Losing all sense of time, space and sound.
I feel like I'm floating, feet off the ground.
My sense of calm borders on the profound.
He's a funny man; smart and kind,
His company is my means to unwind.
Our lives have become so intertwined,
Despite our relationship being undefined.
I wish he could see, to know how I feel,
However that would mean admitting it's real.
I'm safe in my thoughts where life is ideal,
Nothing can hurt me or cause an ordeal.
With each passing day I continue to care,
Preen, perfect; adjusting clothes and my hair,
Hoping for that moment he becomes aware,
The happiness he seeks is standing right there.
Wishing goodnight to my secret sin,
My feelings for him still trapped within.
I hope one day for "us" to begin.
Until then, I'll continue to dream of him.
