My New Course Mate

My heart beats faster 
as she saunters into class,
Her moves, classical!,
like a spell,I am held bound
in a mirage of passion.

Gush! what a beauty!,
still in wonder land, I heard...
'can you shift a bit?'...
I look dazed with mouth  open,
as I squirm aside for her.

*She is my Lavender Rose*

    this is SO SWEET and once again, it's a lavender rose!! I think that color and maybe orange were the most popular ones!! Congrats, I am glad I finally got to see your entry.
