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?
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.
