Butterflies of Anticipation

by George Shannon Ferguson 2 months ago in love poems
Report Story

Waiting for you...


Madam… to have crossed your path is truly a rarity

Honor… getting to know you because it was destiny

... I must say

In… a blissful way

Writing… to you have been profound and deep

Receiving… your emails have been a heavenly treat

Rich… is each letter

Anxious… as I anticipate another

Waiting… until we can talk without no limitation

Nervous… at the thought of the meeting of anticipation

Butterflies… In my stomach growing

Radiance… as the smile on my face showing

Breathing… heavily as I wait for her to appear

Heart… racing as I see her approach I sweat with fear

What… is that tapping?

Listen… is that wings flapping?

Butterflies… of anticipation I can feel them begin to fly

Paralyze… as I attempt to move my legs but they won’t comply

Numbness… my body feels lifeless

Mesmerized… her beauty is priceless

Interlock… as our eyes meet for the very first time

Entwine… as we speak for the very first time

One… moment of hesitation

Escaping… Butterflies of Anticipation
