What I Like Most About You

I think what I like most about you are..

your jokes,

because it only takes one shared laugh,

to make me feel as if no distance rests,

or time has past, between us,

since we saw each-other last

I think what I like most about you are…

your eyes,

because they smile at me as if they know

the slippery ins-and-outs of me,

and glance over

whenever somebody says something out of the ordinary,

I think what i like most about you are..

your Nike socks

because they rise past your ankles,

and compliment your khakis

allowing me to catch a glimpse of you, 20 years from now.

and i know…

and i know…

and i know…

and i know…

what scares me the most about you is

how you’ll come Waltzing over,

one-eye winking

two-arms swinging

along the sides of your old college-T,

to say hello,

and i won’t be able to move or say

one thing.

    Lovely poem Katelyn! Love how you've started with what you like and then moved to what scares you - it's a nice build up to the overall theme. Nice!
