She Waits

It’s an uneasy feeling

In the corner of your eye

She waits.

You’d rather be anywhere

Than feel her stare, hear her voice

She smiles.

You cant find a distraction

It’s too late, she’s in your head

She hopes.

But waiting wont help at all

Time is never on your side

She doubts

You can see it now, cant you?

The worst possible outcome

She’s quiet.

This is about mustering the courage to ask out a girl...then not asking her. (dont worry I did ask her out)
