18th Floor Balcony


What is up with me
Everytime I see her
the wires in my mind connect and spark
and there's a fault haze upon my screens
Everything just goes dark
I'm blind and thoughtless
may I say something stupid
or point my legs criss-cross
and fall upon my face
I mean yeah, she's a friend
and yes I must admit I wish to make her laugh
but have you seen my track record
Women 45, Me Love
well loveless
When class starts and a movie plays
different instincts are in play
there in an instant I'm lost somewhere in the cinema
Then once the bell brings me back to life
realization occurs
and I realize if I want to say I love her
if I want to look her in the eyes
and be serious
instead of hiding my eyes so shyly
playing around like it's all a game
...
This was nothing I planned
cursed instincts
A friend is called a friend for a reason
And...but I don't want to know
instead of one warm touch
I want one warm hug
to just look in her eyes seriously
instead of looking at her
like she's on an 18th floor balcony
wide eyed and starstruck
I don't know
I guess I'm just clueless

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
