Inspiration is hard to come by.
But then I think of you,
And the words flow through my fingers
Like water rushing down river rapids.

I remember your smile, your beautiful eyes,
And I feel like the world could be a better place
If you just saw what I see.
The two of us; you and me.

When I see you, it’s like the rest of the world doesn’t exist anymore.
I have to remind myself how to breathe.
And I think to myself,
“There is nothing in this world that is more perfect than his face.”

My heart beats a little faster every time you come close
And my cheeks catch fire, burning bright with my blood.
I giggle a little, and turn my head the other way,
But some day you’ll know the truth.

Just not today.
