For you.

For you.

A Poem by QC

My heart is hammering in my chest;

A jackhammer brought to life

By the inevitable spark of electricity.

 

My palms are sweaty just looking at you.

Your eyes, pale grey in the blinding sun

Watch me as if you had x-ray vision.

 

I feel naked.

 

Your gaze seems to seep through my entire being

And straight into my soul,

I cannot speak.

 

It seems you’ve tied my tongue

In the tightest constrictor knot you could manage

Without even knowing it.

 

I could say your smile is like the sun

Or a rainbow

Or like springtime,

But I think I’ll settle for contagious.

 

Because I can’t look at you and not smile,

It’s impossible.

 

I am so nervous.

 

But I push it aside.

 

And as my heart is beating a hole through my chest,

And as my palms sweat a small puddle,

And as my tongue ties tighter against itself,

I ask the question that’s been on my mind for weeks:

 

“Will you be my valentine?”

You express so well that sense of wondrous life that flows through one in love.. that sense of breathlessness.. wildness... Beautiful confessions in a beautiful world.

This is really sweet I was scared it would end badly when I read the last line I actually smiled.
