Just a guy that likes a girl and is unaware of how out of touch he is...


 “Hidden Meaning”

 

He tried

not to read

to much

in to it

she talked to

everyone

that came across

her path

but when she

talked to him

the words

she used

seemed different,

he couldn’t

explain

in what way

they were

other than they

seemed softer

when she spoke

caringly

to him

and sharper

when her words

were verminous

but maybe

it’s just that

she’s aiming her

words

in his direction

and that’s why

they seem so

specially blended

just for him,

but even

when she

hands him a

smile

he swears it’s

brighter

and has more

heart

behind it

then the one’s

she casually

throws about

the room

but could this

really be true,

he studies her

movements

as she walks

by him

maybe there is

a hidden sign

she is giving

him

a higher degree

of attention

then the others

competing for

her time

are getting from

her,

but she

freely gives

so much of

herself

to anyone

she’s engaged

with

spotting an extra

amount of

smile

or anything else

for that matter

is going to be

pretty hard,

he notices

she has stopped

moving

his eyes

which had been

closely following

the back of

her

searching for

possible telling

traits of affection

among other

things

travel up her

now stationary

body

to a face

and a set of

shrugging

shoulders

that in concert

display

a look of

‘WHAT?”

he gives back

to her

in return

half a wave

analyzing her

improv charade

pose

not understanding

her reaction

is a direct result

of his study

of her,

he can’t make

any kind of

determination

as to her

body language

having anything

added to it

just for him

he hadn’t ever

seen that look

on her before,

she shakes her

head

in frustration

and just walks

away,

maybe he’s not

trying

all that hard

not to seek

out

special meanings

meant only for

him

in every little

thing

she does

but this time

he’s sure

that shake of

her head

definitely had

something more

added to it

and it was all

meant only

for him,

and unknowingly

he smiles…

Aside from a few places where punctuation would have been nice, the format you chose had me hanging on each individual word. Enthralling is the best way I can describe this.
