Gentle heart, you surprise me.
How did I not know your desires?
You begin to race at his glance.
I wonder what hope he inspires?
Eyes hidden behind a curtain of hair
I act as if I don’t notice his gaze,
Like he is just one in a sea of people
When his presence has me in a daze.
I try to stifle the audacious hope
that his heart beats the same as mine.
