A Poem by Matthew Kult

At First Sight

By 

Jayden DeVoir, Matthew Kult

I notice you, but is it me you are looking toward?
Is there a mutual attraction? I am not ready to impress.
He isn't looking at me. My hair's a mess, makeup ignored.
Can't be me, some other better-looking lady I guess.

She looks amazing. Jesus, Matt, she wouldn't be into you.
Come on man, take a chance. Simply walk up and talk to her.
Are you serious? She's too pretty, I'm not one she would prefer.
I'm not her type. Look at me, I'm a beast that should be in a zoo.

I can't believe I thought he was checking me. I look terrible.
This outfit is all wrong. Go casual, quick run. I look so...plump.
Good looking guy and I look like a dump. Throw on something wearable.
Who are you going to run into? Of course, it highlights my belly bump.

Come on girl, take a peek. Show me any sign you're interested, one clue.
A simple sign of interest, I'm a great guy. At least I would hope you'd concur.
I know I am not a saint, definitely no sinner. But to your opinion, I would defer.
Stop it, you're silly to think she would be into you. She's a good looking view.

Stop it, you're being silly to think he is into you. I'm forever to be alone.
At home, in my jammies, reading a book. Not stupidly stressing over my look.
He looks like a cuddler. Be nice to have someone to hold. Even chat on the phone.
Someone to have over for a meal. He'll never know how great I can cook.

I would go out of my way to worship and cherish you. Give you what I have.
You could call me your guy, brag to your friends how hard I try to provide.
But I'm not the best-looking guy. I'll try every day to make you smile and laugh.

Funny how you can meet the man of your dreams when you feel so weak.
Handsome, strong, everything I seek. Won't hurt to have me another peek.

Funny how you can meet the woman of your dreams, but too scared for the ride.
If only I had the courage to say hi. Take a chance to walk down a couple's path.
Oh my God, did she take a peak? I feel weak. I want to run and hide!

He looks nervous. I think he was looking at me. Oh my God, he's walking toward me!
Hi, I'm Matt. I don't, well, I was wondering, if you would, uh, like a cup of coffee?

At first I thought you made a mistake choosing the poem category seeing the structure, as I started reading though I didn't care anymore. It was so perfectly written I couldn't stop myself. The alternative pov is really interesting. It's funny; the way they were thinking about each other not knowing the other thoughts, and at the same time it is very emotive; their feelings is so plainly expressed that I almost felt sorry. And the ending was enough to console my heart.
Thanks for sharing this.

Thank you for the time.

How I said you are good observer . Details are describe well and make all writing like real experience. Every man go through this. Pain and self doubt. Your words go very depth into reader soul. Maybe it will be more interising if you make more like short story with self dialouge of every person. But otherwise it give reader to go through own memories.

I loved this the back and forth between them. All the emotions they are going through was written brilliantly. I am glad I happened along this piece of work by you.

I love it.
I can't get all wordy & descriptive as to WHY I love it. But I love the insight into our insecurities from both genders. :)

My greatest sin is playing pretend. Acting as if a monster doesn't live within. And surely some I offend But allow me a chat. To show you what I feel It is madness not under a hat. As everything.. more..
