Ode to Patrick's Back

I don’t know who sits behind me
Nor to the left
Or to the right.

All I know’s that you’re
In front of me and
You dazzle in my sight

I don’t understand my feeling
It’s inexplicably strange
Like my logic is just peeling
I try to force a change

But there you sit oblivious
And talk with all your friends
My reason is amphibious
Cloudy forecast it portends

I highly doubt I’ll ever
Get the courage to let you know
Instead we’ll just endeavor
To make a fake, blank show
That neither has seen the other
As fate is meant to be
And yet quite undercover
I’ll love you secretly

Hehe, I was too shy to submit this to my school publication, because I was afraid he'd find out *'_'*

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others.
For beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness.
And for poise walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
