Transfixed


I wrote this piece after I was too scared to go up to this girl and ask for a dance ….I gave it to her afterward, though.  Interesting how you can find inspiration from things in your life, huh?

For Kerie…

Transfixed

Stunning beauty arrests me –

Stops me dead in my tracks.

Transfixed, all movement ceases

As time itself stares in wonder:

Your fluid motions shiver

Like electricity through my consciousness.

Sudden shyness kidnaps composure –

Holding it for ransom at gunpoint.

Cowed, I watch from the sidelines…

Mustering up the courage to say your name.
