Since writing fictional poems that try to capture others’ emotions seems to be a trend, lemme try my hand at it.
I’m sitting on my desk, bored, waiting for class to start,
But the person that just entered isn’t the prof.
It’s a new guy, I’ve never seen him before,
But I’m now not bored, not anymore.
He sits down just beside me, my friend offers him a seat,
Why does it feel like someone turned up the heat?
He looks at me and introduces himself,
But I can’t get a word out myself.
Wait… what just happened? I’m really, really surprised.
How can my confidence, just in a moment lyse?
I mutter an apology and tell him my name,
But myself, I know I’m not the same.
We sit together everyday, talk about everything,
When he’s with me, it’s a funny feeling.
I know not what I feel for him,
But the lights did just dim.
I gather the great courage to finally ask him out,
I manage to only start saying “how about…”
And almost tell him I love his wit,
But my friend beat me to it.
