i wrote this yesterday

Silent Storm

You look like a 20s screen siren
Porcelain, alabaster,
Cheekbones on stilts
Lips like a rose

Faraway look in your eyes,
Listening intently
Pen in mouth, seductive
Head tilted with the weight of thought

Silent today, observer
Chocolate eyes absorbing
All the flickers of movement around
Soaking up all you can

Our eyes meet at the door
You ask me to your study session
I ask you to mine next break
We don't meet again today.

And my heart beats only for you
I feel thoughts of others
Betraying my devotion to you,
Unrequited, unknown

Though you know there's something
I can never tell you,
I'll just have to tolerate
Confusion in your eyes
