Somewhere Between Love and Math


Poem Commentary

Playing with lovey feelings in Math class...

Somewhere Between Love and Math

Butterflies fluttering in my stomach in their dreamy mating dance

My heart is racing

My hands are shaking

I’m a schoolgirl in a trance

Your eyes are a colorful blend of autumn leaves

I can’t concentrate in Math and my smile spreads to my sleeve

I’m happy and my spirit is in the clouds

None other has ever made me want to dance and sing aloud

You are as sweet as summer strawberries

so wise in your grace

I can’t focus on equations

All I see is your face

I hope someday I can buy some of your time

So easily you inspire me and instead of averages

I’m formulating rhymes

What a simple romantic distraction

And I pray a mutual attraction

As you have me captivated

The poet in me forever activated

My soul is filled with glee at the idea of seeing you again

I know no better reason to pray this class will end.
