Nameless Distraction

Nameless Distraction

A Poem by Xavier Honre

 I just met you today
But I feel connected
And oddly enough,
Even protected.

The look in your eyes
When you hear that I'm gay
Was burnt into my head
And won't go away.

It wasn't of fear,
Or open disgust
But rather of question
And possibly trust?

I played it off
As if I didn't see
But I felt your eyes linger
When you looked at me.

You came through the drive-thru
At work tonight
And when I saw your face
It sparked a light.

You hadn't left my head
Since I met you at school
My mood really brightened
And my energy was full.

When you saw it was me
A smile crossed your face
That gave me a feeling
Which can't be erased.

You have me confused
And twisted inside,
But it doesn't bother me
Because I don't have to hide.

I'll just be a friend
If you don't mind
And should it go further,
I'll take it in stride.

Because love at first sight
Isn't possibly true,
Even though it explains
What I'm feeling for you.

So step by step
I'll play this odd game
And how about I start
With learning your name?
