Your hi lights up my face, instantly mutilating my lips to a broad smile
Your handshake leaves me wishing to clutch longer, almost interlocking momentarily
A good-bye tightens my mind, longing for an undeserved hug
A message shivers my heart, jumbles my brain
My blank mind attacked by your should-be-forgotten memories

At the end of the day, I laugh at:
Tuning out her to stare at you
Losing focus to watch you focus
Moving my stool a step or two closer
Laughing at your mundane comments

And I ask whether it is worth it?
The answer waves through me

With mind-cooling fantasies
Love of perfectly hidden secret
Beauty of unrealized smiles

It changes me
Comforts me
Mystifies me.
