I see you seated there, looking joyful but slightly defeated.
A row away, a mere whispers distance.
You’re so close yet so far away
I’m overwhelmed with an immediate and undeniable attraction
I’m drawn to you like you’re my opposite magnetic pole.
I so want to come over and talk to you but inside me I’m afraid.
Afraid of rejection, for I figure that’s the worst that could happen.
To deep inside my soul your beauty speaks.
Your struggle, your hopelessness I hear it all,
We reach an unspoken peace,
With my heart and soul still wanting to know more.
If only the emotions
I’ve gained in the heat of a moment.
I could show to you.
I keep glancing in your direction but I never approach you.
The stranger my heart wants to know.
It’s a long name but that’s what I’ll call you.
