Poem: what do you say? – 02/12/21

what should I do, per se,
when you smile at me
and my stomach turns flips fills with butterflies
for days
in a haze I am saved from the embarrassment
of utter utter bashfulness
your warmth makes me grow with intent
braver by the moment
and I ask how was your day
and what did you do as you laid quietly contemplating
thoughts come what may?

did my image cross your mind
pass in your thoughts
taut and taught the memories we have wrought
but what matters most is not that moment
when our lips touched in my mind
in my heart you will stay
contemplate me, my presence in your life
allow me to stayyy…

prisms of understanding
growth factor sighing
bright eyes reflecting
and amazing amazing
could we be if you would allow me to be
with you, in your world,
what do you say?
