Hey Lady In Pink Pants
I have seen you before
Yes, I have.
Not in my dreams, no.
Not in my day dreams, no.
Not sure where, but
But why can’t I remember?
I call after you
Dumbfounded and air-headed,
I fumble with the words
I pretend all I wanted to tell you was “you’re beautiful”
You flash that all-knowing smile at me
Secretly telling me, you understand,
But no, I want to tell you way more than that.
You walk away
I can’t help but stare
Stare at you in those pink pants
The coldness gets to my soul
As you walk away,
I remember everything people say about light skins,
I convince myself that this will be different
My sorrow is very short-lived
You are back in that seat again
So close to me yet a little too far.
Here Stuck in this tent,
With this whole crowd around us
As it rains so hard around us
I look at you!
So cute and poised,
I gape at your Elegance,
All graceful, refined, tasteful, and all.
Being the man I am,
I am, thinking of how well I want to treat you
How I want to share in your special delicacy,
And that is when it happens.
I choke on my thoughts
I have been gaping too long, yes!
And there you are,
In all majesty
I see you are gaping at me too
It’s cold no more
Your smile a reassurance
Ed Sheeran playing in my head
Wondering if am actually “Thinking out loud”
Our eyes dance to the beat of the rain
Your energy resonates right through me
My knees all wobbly I tweet,
“Today I met someone”
I wonder if they can see us
I don’t want them to.
But I can’t get my eyes off you
The rain a delicious pain
I stare and stare and stare and S.T.A.R.E
I finally gather the little courage I have left
I walk up to you
I can’t say a word,
You offer me a seat,
I smell you in,
I can’t get enough.
3, 4, 6 minutes
Nothing to say. Really. NOTHING.
I wrap my arm around
You rest in my arms with that sweet smile
I want this to last forever
No, I need it to.
I pray the rain doesn’t stop
Before long you are tasked, and away
I can’t wait for the cocktail party
Will you come with me?
Will you let me have that dance?
