This is about someone I have seen and I really liked, and time after time he captures my eye and I find it impossible to say a word to him. And this is about the first time we met, and barely said anything to each other.

From across the room I stare,
thoughts of you and me making a pair,
so I want to say “Hey,
with those arms, a dragon you can slay”.

In admiration of your beauty,
I feel obliged as if it was my duty,
to talk to you and show,
that my lust for you will overflow.

I walk next to you, and I open my mouth,
but no sound comes out,
walking away with nerves triggered,
I wonder if my words you would have considered.

The story continues, my eyes are on you,
but next to you I feel like a shrew,
slowly building up confidence,
and easing the muscles which are tense.

We have a mutual friend,
which to you I want to send,
I follow him and he introduces us,
and about that moment I still fuss.

You say hello, I smile,
the words in my mind only pile,
but I don’t say anything,
I wish I get us into a fling.

I regret not being able to say a word,
your voice in my mind is still being heard,
I look forward to meet you again,
and ease you of any pain.

Brilliantly written. So much emotion well put into words. Not grabbing that opportunity when it comes really sucks at times, so if you want something next time and it comes staring at you make sure you grab the opportunity and make it count. I like it

I used to be a really shy person and that gets me nowhere. I'm trying to overcome that. this is nicely written.

I can relate to this so much. It's so difficult to find the right words to begin a conversation with someone you put your eyes on. I really like the poem. I just found that in some parts it didn't flow that well cause there was a word too much or too little in a line. or maybe I read it the wrong way^^ possibly you can read this again and see what I mean? anyway I really like this poem cause I can relate so much :)

it is hard indeed. And yes I know what you mean I felt a struggle to make it flowing, but couldn't make it better so I left it as it is. Sometimes to make it flow you lose an important word and I want it more to be about the feeling than the rhythm
