(inhale)
He calls upon me
What would that equal?
Too loud
Too mean
Too easy
I answer with ease
Ten and seven tenths
Too sure
Too smug
Too quick
My friend winks at me
She points behind me
At him
The one
My guy
I turn a bright red
What does he think now?
I fret
Grip tight
More red
I gradually turn
He looks in my eyes
Gorgeous
Stunning
Perfect
I wonder his thoughts
How does he see me?
Too slow
Too fat
Too dull
Then I realize
Class is now over
Too soon
Too late
Too bad
(exhale)
