2nd Time Charmer

2nd Time Charmer

A Poem by kera moondust

Because why not =)


I remember the first time you told me you liked me

We were in the middle of math class

Somewhere towards the middle of our freshmen year

I remember the sour feeling it gave me

                Deep in my stomach


I don’t remember the look on your face

Or the sound of your voice

           (There were no spoken words)

I don’t even remember if the sun was hitting your seat

                (or even if we were sitting down at the time)


But I know I gave the note a quick

                                Fast paced glance

And then stashed it with the same speed

And I know I practically

                Swallowed my throat saying no


You don’t remember that time

And claim it was probably a joke

(I’m not surprised. I was the butt of jokes a lot)


Time passed as time usually does

And after many


Dates and kisses

You asked me out again


This time it was a few

Days after you told me

You liked me


When I could hear your voice get quiet

And feel your hand twitch in


                (I held you closer)

These are things I remember


We were driving around

Hanging posters

And with your blue gaze

Focused more on the ground then mine


You asked me if I had tried

This cute little Mexican restaurant

To which I responded. No I’ve never been

Then you asked me if I would like to

                Go there with you



I smiled and said I’d like that

                Very much

Then your gaze broke

        You looked at me very straight forwardly

And said

                “You know that’s a date… Right?”


I had to giggle

Your innocence in that moment

Drew me in

                We held hands

And now

                I’ve fallen for you


Innocence or


Blue eyes

                Bronze skin

Sock covered feet

And all.
