I noticed her before she knew I was there.
Blonde strands billowing. So unaware.
Maybe it was the uncertainty in her stare.
Or the way the curls swirled in her hair.
Knees buckling weak, I needed a chair,
when her eyes met mine to my dispair..
I felt she felt nothing. There was no flare.
Until she smiled the brightest grin, breath of fresh air.
Heart thumping wildly, jazzy drum snare.
Smile back you idiot! Do I dare?
Passing with a flash, I trip. Beware!
Tumbling over myself, red cheeks – embarrassed squared.
There goes my chance, so unfair.
Now my bus is approaching can’t stop to glare –
at the crack in the sidewalk, that made my feet impaired.
Glancing back quickly, and out of nowhere.
She flailed and shouted, “I have your bus fare!”
A turn of events as I turn back to prepare,
my slew of sloppy words against a quiet cupid’s prayer.
I think it was granted, though I can’t really compare.
Cause after I asked her out she said, “Until then, take care.”
