i tried to force myself to look into her eyes.
i tried hard, too afraid that i would become lost and
unable to find my way out.
i looked down at my feet... at the table and her friends.
i tried to cheat and look at her eyelids but it was like
two naked bodies in love and in bed trying to stay
i slipped in.
what was probably seconds seemed like years of soul
searching and entangling, surrounding emotions of heart-
i had gotten what i came for.
i went home at night listening to the wind making love to
the trees, weaving through the streets that i suddenly knew
she was just as scared as i and i couldn't imagine anything
