Drunk off another crush.
Finding solace in a whisper,
and a wink — you winked my way.
It’s got to be to me, right?
A flirtatious grin, you grinned
touched the depth of a heart —
a heart I thought I’d lost.
Yet here it is, pumping to the beat
of the batting of your hazel eyes.
I read your lips from across the room,
but your voice rings
through thoughts making memories
of us, smiling.
And it’s just as it should be.
