And just for thought...
You walk up to me and I become a blubbering idiot.
You smile and my face lights up and I'm completely lost to myself.
No man has ever sent my stomach into such an uproar until you.
I have been able to keep my cool next to the most charming,
always aloof with my words, never out of control with anyone else.
I stumble with you, reverting back to middle school hesitations.
My hands fly to places, uncomfortable hair twirling.
Never before have I been intimidated by the likes of a man.
I know the game, what they want, and ultimately what they do not.
I can take them or rip them up just the same,
leave them behind without even acknowledgement of ever knowing them in the first place.
Then you came along, kind and respectful, throwing me off my guard
but I know you could just like all the others.
Your broad shoulders give me thoughts I cannot say.
Your stupid grin inspires dreams that I will never tell.
You make me laugh, giggle like a dumb school child.
I don't know if I'm impressed or disgusted at this behavior.
You stand next to me and I become a bashful fool.
Your eyes meet mine and my heart skips.
I can ask any man out without fear of yes or no.
It doesn't mean a damn either way but you make me care.
And that makes me angry.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
