[ I wrote this a while back but chanced upon it today so here it is. no danger in posting it now.]

barely even know you
no, i don't know you at all
and i'm lovestruck.
it must be that faint recognition
a semi-familiar face in this sea of strangers,
your confident swagger, bad boy habits a pleasant surprise,
not who i thought you were,
once again i've fallen in like with a stranger.
once again i've fallen in like with the first cute boy that i meet.
our two sentences,
exchanged in a detached, other world, do you remember them?
they hang in the air, shining.
gone, but they've traced the tattoo of a maze.
me at the entrance, not confident, not bad enough,
maybe not who you want,
but ready.
