Unknown "Look" of Love Rap

Updated on July 12, 2016

The way she gave me a look, or maybe a glance

captivated my soul and had me in a trance

I tried to sneak a peek back, if she'd give me a chance,

but my spying eyes open had her looking askance

did I mistake her gaze

did I not see it right

I wish I had the third eye

to read minds with the sight

A glimpse into her mind

might not have me staring in fright

so I keep gawking at her frame

and hope my ogling is all right

Have you ever mistook a look a person gave you as a sign of interest?

See results

This poem, in a rap style format, describes a young man who cannot understand the look on a particular woman's face. At one point her look captivates his soul and he is in love, but that look quickly changes to one of suspicion about why he is looking back. However, like most young men our hopes of romance outweigh our ability to read minds.

      Interesting perspective on a glance mistaken. Nice writing, pulled me in. Two thumbs up.
