The look

The look

A Poem by Nirmala
"

The mixed messages of love and attraction can entirely take away one's confidence in both men and women. This is one such experience...

"

                   The look

 

Compelled to turn

By your steady stare

A look of mystery

Baffling and not very fair

 

Perplexed I faltered

Embarrassed and shy

That I’d been noticed

I wondered why

 

Gliding away

Avoiding the power

Of those amazing eyes

I moved really far

 

To breathe more freely

To think more clearly

To calm my heart beat

To bring back sanity

 

I checked my reflection

On the glass on the door

Was something amiss?

Was something in store?

 

You were a stranger

That entered my space

Handsome and confident

To stare without grace

 

A look so intent

Was it aversion?

Was I familiar?

Or was it attraction

 

Later you told me

You were entirely enthralled

From the first time you saw me

As I entered the hall

 

Love and attraction

Confuse things it might

Even if garbled

The heart sets it right

this is a great poem. the confusion it describes is very real, and the doubts you wrote about definitely destroy ones confidence.
