sonnet 2Posted: August 1, 2008
Was it a misfiring of neurons that led me to look in your direction?
I approached you, navigating through hordes of plebeians just to see your face.
Never have I heard a voice with such a beautiful inflection.
I could not even speak a word, stutters were in their place.
You lightly chuckled.
We were underneath the stars surrounded by people oblivious to our exchange.
I quietly mumbled.
It seems beauty is my confidence’s bane.
What drove your eyes to meet mine is a force that cannot be defined by a book.
Just what the hell did you see in me?
Yet whenever I spoke,
Your face seemed to spontaneously light up with glee.
Forever will I cherish the moment you caught the corner of my eye.
You’re the life of the party when you smile.
