One Day I'll Run Into You
by Jennifer L Banks
I fear the day I run into you again.
I feel like my breath is gone and also my brain.
I think of that soft "hi" and bright smile, intent stare,
and I'll suddenly have the urge to just turn around and flee with flare.
I bolt, yes I do.....for no reason then I can't breathe....
I'll fumble and flush, Feel stupid but knowing about that rush
to escape, to flee, and I'll just run off
Like I did before, choke up and fluster something lame.
I hope that you take my hand, stop me, block me and say hi.
I love you Jay, as dumb as it seems, I can't stop feeling this,
nor would I try.
It's painful what I feel, times we shared and sex appeal through.
I just wish you'd come back and feel this too.
Author's Note: written more from the heart then actually well written.

The opening to this pulls right through the door in the best way possible. And it just goes up from there.

Sometimes the heart trumps grammar, context and syntax. It did in this lovely poem, Jennifer!

I like it...I like it a lot. Both in its construction...easy flow of words, and the "from the heart" aspect.
