Just you and me


One hour and a quarter;
You’ve been sitting there watching me like a prick;
And my clumsiness knows no bounds;
I’ve accidentally knocked over my cup of hot mocha.
And I feel the heat building up in the coffeeshop.

My crossed-legs, I hope have enticed you:
Fair enough.
Your eyes seemed to have drilled holes through me
And I find it funnily ravishing.
Why, do you NOT see that I’m poring over my magazine
And I do not as much as sneak a look—-oh!
Are those green eyes?
I was just a wee bit curious.
My mind is spinning
Feels like I’m on a merry-go-round.

My fingers are numb and so are my legs
You don’t expect me to walk over to that table of yours!
I’m not up for that.Not just yet.
For all I know, I might stumble into your arms.
Silly imagination, I stave that off.
Why am I p-a-n-t-i-n-g?

Stop drooling and hold my gaze,now.
I need to brush my bangs a little hither and thither
Yep, that’s how I roll!
Starstruck- aren’t you?
Oh wait, where ARE you heading?

I’m not done yet.
Would you come back again, tomorrow?
We could have more of a one-on-one talk.
Just you and me, maybe…
