Eyes searching unintentionally.
for his glimpse,
As soon as feet cross every door.
Thoughts drawn again & again,
To what he said or did
Even so in dreams at times.
Or as eyes drift open to light.
A goofy smile on face,
As his antics cross the mind.
And a oh so light feeling
As fingers scroll the chats they shared.
He ain’t perfect ,
& she ain’t blind to his faults either.
But it feels good to just think of him,
While the world & maybe even he,
Rests unaware of her affections.
Her elation hidden underneath.
Sarcasm & jokes,
Her uneven heartbeats.
& all the nervous energy ,
behind the prickly facade ,
More of a defense to keep him away.
But sigh only if ,
Stop plaguing her mind he will.
None other than –
The crush of her life.
