Oh, yeah, I'll tell you something
I think you'll understand...

I blame the Beatles' song
on repeat inside my head
as we walk along the crowded hallway
arms brushing against each other
my heart starts to flutter
tempted to stay or move away
as tune reaches its chorus
putting my thoughts into song.

I wonder how our hands would look
clasped together, palms touching
fingers intertwined
to better contrast your skin with mine.
Will it pull you to me
or can it pull me in,
into deeper understanding,
the lines of your palms confessing
the story yet to pass your lips
in a language i can't decipher.

Or at least, not yet.

"...yesterday is only a dream, tomorrow, but a vision..."

I wanna hold your hand
Refreshing piece. The innocence and longing is present without sounding like a journal entry. Loved 'The lines of you palms confessing' NICE!

Love it
Can I just say that I love this, it is kinda bringing something back that I am feeling for someone. I want to hold your hand.

This reminds me alot of my teen years. I love the Beatles song playing , adding a music throughout the whole poem, and then the fixation on one thing: that physical contact: liked this one very very much. i actually printed it to show a friend :)

I agree with Lucie that the real "meat" of this poem is in the second stanza. It could stand as a poem all by itself, but I rather liked being drawn in by your innocent introduction. 9.5 seems like the right rating. I can't bring myself to give it a perfect ten, but I can't, at this point, give it a nine either, since that would bring down your average score.
