Crush

Looking at my crush
Through a glass onion
Captivated from afar
Up close, I glance away
Seeming uninterested
Afraid you’ll finally catch me
In your petite tractor beam
Reeled into the pitch darkness
Of your lovely eyes
I hope you’ll dismiss
My more-than-occasional focus
Centered on your tender lips
As I drift to paradise
Along the melody of your lullabye
Your song soothes me
As you strum your lyre
Like Saul, I melt away from my usual maddened frame
Falling alseep to your tune

I wasn’t looking when I found you
The diamond among the stars
A plain, yet precious jewel
Glimmering with bright colors
Every facet beautifully crafted
Every feature so wonderfully made
Shining light
Upon this dark and cold world
