did you know
I was watching
when you tried to hide
that you were
watching me?
I was hoping
you would speak to me
because I was too shy
to speak to you.
for days, weeks, months
I imagined
your voice
your touch
your kiss
your love
but I believed
it was truly fantasy –
a dream
I would never live.
but I was wrong
assuming impossibility
because you
were only waiting
for the perfect moment
to speak to me
to touch me
to kiss me
to love me.

grey hearts.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Hawaii where she could learn to surf. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    Beautifully written piece Sandra. I can relate to that, being to shy to speak (some time ago) and having someone I liked, being the same way. Glad for your speaker and her guy it worked out 🙂

    I loved you as certain dark things are loved. Secretly, between the would and the shadow. – Neruda
