tried to capture the mixed feelings you get when you first fall in love & you're ignored.
i will be the first to admit that i'm horrible at poetry, but i personally liked this one.
constructive (& deconstructive) criticism is always welcome.

What does it take

To turn your eyes towards me?

a flirt?

a giggle?

What should I do?

I’m at a loss

Give me some pointers

God, what should I do?


My heart will explode

Please look at me once!

Please tell me, for the love of fuck,

What should I do

To get you to look

In my goddamn general direction?


I’m lost.

My emotions are awhirl

All I truly know

Is that I want you to look at me

Even if it’s just once

Should I have large breasts?

Should I show leg?

Maybe I’m too large

Or am I too small?


As the time has gone by

A week

A month

A goddamn year

Not a single glance have you spared

Does it cost you too much?

Throw this girl a bone

You damn bastard.
