“See You Again”

Hey you…
I think
we’ve met

Don’t be
so shy.
You remember
I see it
in your eye.

Don’t be
so stiff.
I promise
I won’t bite
that hard.

Oh you’re busy,
I see.
I’m busy

We keep
and running
into each other
but the greetings
aren’t long.

Your job
is demanding
your time
my work
is crying
for attention.

But then
we find
each other
once again.

is calling
your name
and he
is calling

We’ll see
each other

I know
to be true.

Maybe then
will be
on our side.

my dear.
But just
for now.

not through
with our story.

Maybe next time
it will
be different.

So for now,
I’ll wish you luck
and you’ll
do me the same.

I’ll meet you
when I meet you
but for now
it was just
to see you

“Boy Next Door”

I looked for you
when I rounded the bend
on our street.

I looked for you
when the sun was high
and the air filled with heat.

If it was raining out
I knew our paths
would surely not meet.

I thought I always
was the one
to notice you first.

I thought I always
tried to find the right words
only my voice was dried by thirst.

Probably, it was for the best
to stay on the sidewalk
as a girl, silent and cursed.

Then, one day walking
down our street
I noticed a flash of color.

Him going one way,
and I the other, neither of us stopped
except in the looks we gave each other.

I held your eyes,
and you held mine
until out of sight in that breath of summer.

After, I wondered
what it meant.

Me always looking to you
and then you seeing me.

Maybe you too thought words
weren’t the only way to speak.
