Your baby blues stared at me, locked onto my eyes. My usual impulse to look away
escaped me and a new one took it's place - I didn't want to move.
There was something different in your eyes, as if
you truly wanted to know me.
Immediately, my mind began to wander, my heart began to beat faster.
A feeling I'm all too familiar with started electrifying beneath my skin.
The air between us grew quiet as I leaned in closer, something magnetic pulling me into your energy.
But something kept me from reaching you. A heavy awareness of fear set and sank into my heart,
spreading a shadow of anxiety and paranoia all around me.
I want you so much closer,
but my own doubts about myself are what is eating my feelings for you up.
So I just sit there, across from you,
hoping that you want to be closer to me too.
