I wish to feel the warmth of your cheek,
Against my chest,
I want you to count the beats I’m missing,
Only now do I understand what you meant,
By saying one of your favorite things,
Is listening as a heart speeds up.
I wish to drag your hand slowly behind my arm,
As I follow a meaningless,
Through any crowded city street.
I wish I had the education,
My feelings about you,
But I only have what I have,
So I end up making a fool of myself,
Just to catch your eye.
I wish I could stop,
To be the man I know you deserve,
I’ve forgotten where normal went.
I find truth in your eyes,
Your ‘plain’ brown eyes,
We both know,
That even diamonds are plain,
When a queen becomes accustomed to her own splendor.
I wish you could see that.
