One Way Street: A Poem

Updated on May 7, 2012

I saw you standing tall

Let's just say I was in awe

You were attractive to say the most

A tongue-tied, rose-faced girl

I couldn't process you

In fact, I still don't know who you really are

Just a jumbled collection of my feelings?

I forget you're only human

We're merely friends, if that

I musn't pin my hopes on you

They'd never survive

When they've already been crippled by lesser men

But yet we are the same, only slightly varied

We speak a different language but with the same inflection

I wish you moved, but you only saunter away from me

At least I don't feel alone when my mind makes you its focal point

Someday you'll find someone else and then I can move on.

'Love' makes as much sense as math.

      Truly great poetry! Standing alone with feelings is hard... And moving on with them is harder

      Oh, I liked this poem. It reminded me of being a teenager and thinking I'm in love, but it's so one sided because I don't know what to say and the object of my flights of fancy was oblivious. Thanks for the walk down memory lane. Well done!
