First impression seeing you.

As you are

Who you are



At First Wondering

Why you dress the way you do

Or

Wear that expression upon your face



Caught staring

A small bit of eye contact

shared

Eyes quickly to the ground

Awkwardly Stowed



On that small piece of carpet

to call your own

your eyes hidden in its brush



Looking up to see

See if they have noticed

your brief interaction



Brain with worry

Have they?

What if they did?



Of course like they sensed

your eyes were once again present

Were they curious?

Or

Just out of there shell to see if it is safe to see once again?



Have they been watching?



Not purposely watching

Just wondering about them

They caught your eyes again

The interaction is much shorter

More awkward then last

We could have talked;didn't



Never Friends

Just Acquaintances

For a few minutes.



Then strangers

Just like that

once again
