UXR 324

Your smile was so pretty
as you stood there.
Dark hair, soft skin, gentle eyes.
And later,
sitting with your two friends,
my eyes were fixed on only you.
You sat quietly, shy ...
with lips that if speaking of love
would do so with softness.

I wanted to meet you,
but meeting someone in a crowd
is awkward for me.
And even though your crowd
consisted of two friends
I ran scared in the other direction,
afraid of my feelings for you,
never again to have the chance
of sharing my feelings with you.

And now,
as you drive off into the night,
I stand alone ...
not even knowing your name.
