well here i am... and there i go.
shaken by the words that escaped your lips,
i sit there helpless and speechless
no words can be quite enough to express.

i came in with no exceptions,
but i had plenty of hesitations.

i can only blame myself for falling,
i dreamt of what we might have been
my head in the clouds, continually longing,

your kisses were indescribable,
your touch was unbelievable,
how do i not know those were meant for her..

your eyes so deep and loving,
your stare so sad and empty,
how do i not know your distant stare
is you thinking "i wish she were here"

Knock me down!

Your poetry perfectly expresses something that I experienced around 1972.
