Tangled (a poem)

Tangled
Written March 17th, 2011
You're looking at me
With those sparkling eyes
Suddenly I can't think

Your lips part and you laugh
So beautiful, so uplifting, so seductive
Suddenly I can't breathe

You're touching me
Leaving trails of fire on my skin
Suddenly my heart stops

You don't know
What you do to me
I don't think I understand it myself
This is all new
I'm not sure I'm ready
For this, for you

You're watching me
When you think I haven't a clue
Suddenly my mind is numb

Your hand is in mine
Fingers jokingly intertwined
Suddenly my insides twist

You're hugging me, pull away
I wish you would linger; stay
Suddenly my cheeks are burning

I wish I could tell you
Right now, today
How you make me feel this way
But I'm scared
Lost
I don't know if this is what I want
I do know:
I don't want to hurt you

So I'll keep my lips together
Sealed tight
Holding back the words bubbling inside
So I'll just sit here
In the dead of the night
And write

You're hinting at me
I don't know what to say
Suddenly I'm tangled

You don't know
What you do to me
I don't think I understand it myself
This is all new
I'm not sure I'm ready
For this, for you
