Yours lovingly

Eyes lock
And we quickly look away
A smile kisses
My lips
As I dared to glance back
You did the same
And an easy blush
Colors my cheeks
I look way
Maintain a calm poise
Engage in conversation
With someone else
This is all of course a show
A kind I put up
Just for you

It’s not before long
That I find you gone
Restless my eyes search
I didn’t even know your name
My feet moved
Out of their own accord
I bump at a person
Paying at the bar – his wallet fell
“Oh, I’m sorry! I-
But then I saw his eyes
Full of amusement
And seemed to know
Exactly what went through
My mind
Flushed and angry
At my own stupidity
I stalked off
In the opposite direction
All the while cursing
A tiny detail on the
Now unwillingly
Committed to memory
For I now knew his name

Good poem! My only complaint is the awkward structure. Otherwise, good poem! :D - Shade
