The Man With the Attitude

    The Man With the Attitude

    I’m the one with the attitude
    Passing you by in the corridor
    You always think I’m being rude
    As my eyes avert to the floor.
    But if the truth has to be said
    Your thinking is far amiss
    Every night, my last thought in bed
    Is dreaming of sharing a kiss.
    Far too shy to share my desire
    I blush when you look at me
    When inside my heart’s on fire
    Imagining how things could really be.
    So another day spent ignoring you
    When really I want it all
    I’ve felt like this with o so few
    But I’m scared of the rejected fall
    Please don’t think I’m ever being rude
    When next we share the same space
    It’s just that your love my fantasy has viewed
    But I’m too shy to look in to your face.

    How often that may be the case when we think some disses us, they actually are real shy. Nice work.

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
