A Glance

spark

(image from http://www.kimballibrary.com)

I see him
a glance
racing heart, sweaty palms
Do you think he feels the same?

Rapid pulse,
garbled words, come on tongue speak!
Timid smile
blue eyes twinkle
my knees go weak

Kind, gentle
thoughtful, intelligent
Fluttering heart, the spark of desire
Do you think he feels the same?

Soft, warm
tender touch
melting will, ache to be one
dream to be friends forever
Do you think he feels the same?

    I know I have felt the same! Your poem cuts to the heart and reminds me of one I had written many years ago. You have tapped one of the universal human experiences that might even be a defining one.
