First Sight

on

 

You turned around,

lost in your own thoughts,

oblivious of the fact

that I was there.

 

Our eyes met.

and the time stopped.

It felt like an eternity

that I was lost in your eyes.

 

Something stirred deep

inside me, made me feel things

that I didn’t know I was

even capable of feeling.

 

Fireworks went off inside my head

as I saw you walk towards me.

Every second felt like a year

while I watched you come to me.

 

And right there you were

in front of me and yet,

I couldn’t gather the courage

to even say a simple “Hi”.

 

You took my hand in yours

and asked me for a dance.

I happily obliged and suddenly,

all the songs were about you.

 

 

P.S.-

Let me know what you think of the poem through the comments below.

  1. Beautiful Sonali. The quiet exchange of glances near a dance floor can be a sensual dance in their own way. I love how you ended this.

    That one person makes the difference when no else matters, your mind goes blind and you can’t see no one but them. Lovesick, it starts with a song and a dance, then your head in a trance. Missed you beautiful, don’t know where you been, hope you been okay❀️. Loved how relatable this was, I’m sure everyone has been there, the feeling was there…great write.
