Confronting an acquaintence

Sat, 06/07/2014 - 16:48 -- bwinny


These eyes have wandered upon you, darting back and forth

hoping that you'd notice.

Each second, this silence seems louder.

I'm dying to say something, but what?

*just say it*


No, here they come

no, no no no no no


Why am i so scared?


here we go..

"Hello, nice to meet you, what's your name?"



The intent of this is not referring to a crush or significant other, but the moment when one meets someone they'd very much like to befriend. The anxiety wells until perhaps enough courage is roduced to exple some sort of intelligible greeting.
