Dream Things

I'll find you someday.

Dream Things

Concealing

My feelings

Was never my forte.

Revealing

My dream things

Was never okay--

But all that ends today.

The sight of you has me reeling,

Kneeling,

Reaching for the ceiling.

Love is unappealing to those still healing...

But then you glanced my way.

They say patience and time

Are all that one needs,

But will this sorry little rhyme

Help us plant those seeds?

A head topped with umber twists,

Two piercing chocolate eyes;

A mask that hides secret lips

Doubles as your disguise.

You're not as I expected;

You don't tower over me,

And yet I'm still affected

By your brief display of glee.

You hide in plain sight--

We are the same

--And then you walked to the right before I could catch your name.

What a start to my day...

My freedom was short-lived

Because you came along,

And for some odd reason

I'm reminded of a song:

I can hear the stirring lyrics.

I can hear the gentle melody.

I feel like I'm in hysterics--

What on Earth is wrong with me?

My heart is pounding.

Confounding

How you're rounding

The corner near me.

Astounding...

It's dumbfounding,

The warmth of my cheeks.

My thoughts constantly hounding

As you brush past me.

You pause to beg pardon--

Your eyes widen,

Your emotions guarded.

Stumbling over your words

As I smile shyly and wave off your concerns.

Your ears tinted pink,

You continue on your way.

What a start to my day,

Don't you think?

Inspired by a recurring dream.
