Across the room I see you glance at me,
Another chance, a second so sublime.
You blue eyes hide your mind's complexity;
You look away, the chance now lost in time.
Fast turn your gaze away, head to the side,
And innocently twirl your golden hair.
We wonder if we know what our minds hide;
Why must this game have to be so unfair?
Ignoring eyes now pretend you don't know,
You fan the flames of jealousy; they burn.
Is it truly so hard to let it show?
But it is not long 'fore your eyes return.
The question then I almost ask again,
Your answer lies in wait, in time, but when?
