Unbearable Beauty

It mattered not about his face nor if he had a face at all
I couldn't eat, couldn't think  short breath, blank wall               
Studder seems to me the only language to master now
I'd rather die than let him see sweat drips in my brow

I crossed my fingers hard as he passed close today
Praying he wouldn't speak.   I wouldn't know what to say
How could I explain this pointless buckle in my knee?
When all there ever was...This Stranger I did see!

    Reminds me a bit of the Girl from Ipanema; each day as walks to the sea she looks straight ahead not at me. Sometimes it hurts just to think of the possibilities and shyness takes over the ego.

    Beautiful. I love rhyming poetry. It's as pleasant to me as harmony in a good song. This is a good song.
