How I wish I could just come near you
and pretend we know each other.
Perhaps exchange smiles and chat for a while.
I know you recognize my face and so do I.
We did'nt just meet now, we meet a couple of times
but it seems were two strangers in two different mountains
only glancing to each other to our heart content.
I am afraid to lock my eyes on you
so many reasons I must say,
one of it is that you might get angry
and throw a disgusted look on me.
You might mistook my look for love.
In this meer distance, chairs and book are my shield
pretending that I am glancing at them but
it is truely you who I wanna keep on seeing.
I pretend to rock my chair, rest my arms but eyes are focused
only to one thing and that is you.
You caught me starring at you not only a couple of times
but you just ignored it and it made me startle.
I don't know it, each time your eyes locks mine
as if 1000 volts travel through your eyes to mine
and it melts my whole body.
Are you flirting? can I ask? or just annoyed by my task.
I am not looking or observing at your wink and blink
but looking through such heavenly face and can be an addiction
now I can't seem to get out of my situation.
Don't think I did'nt see that, you're facing downwards but your eyes are on me.
I noticed you smiled but when I came to catch that jolt
you withdrawed or should I say withhold.
Don't pretend you're too busy cause thats not reality
because thats also my strategy.
I got you at last, you're snippers look did'nt work now
I caught that little glance, thanks a lot.
Now were both smiling, completely understanding
that were both playing.
Should we say "hide and seek plus catch"
or "flirting with you atlast."
Now you made a gesture that the game is over.
By the way thanks for this memory
I might as well get back to my work and research
until the next"hide and seek plus catch"
or "flirting with you atlast."

I like the imagery
Hi red angel,

I like the imagery and the feelings your poem gave me. As a reader, I could feel that it's written for me [wink, wink :-)].

I could sense though that you have this habit of rushing your work. I mean, you could have edited some of the lines e.g., "each time your eyes LOCKS mine," etc.

As a whole though, I love what you've written.
