A day spent together

Talking, laughing, happy

I still remember his smile

The intensity of his eyes

It’s captivating

I’ve longed for someone

Young, level headed

My nerves overtake me

Cripple me, I open my mouth

But utter nothing

I simply smile, and remain


I see him time and time again

But I’m shackled

By ghosts of experiences past

The fear is too strong

So each day passes by

And I know a time will come

When I shall see him no more

But I still don’t have the courage

To let him know how I feel

So I still remain
