Don't Pass By

extracted

smiling; hello 

It's been a long day, tired off all the repetitive noise:

Move slow
Times fast
Why won't
You go
I'm important
Are you important
To me

Extracted

Hello; Smiling

Digging into a word; something about electricity, a connection; might discourage it. The sun stayed on long and with all the conversations, cars zooming, creatures moving, I couldn't find silence in my head. Staring at an ordinary sidewalk that grew me exhausted from how normal it was. I paced a listless pace, in total daze of the abundance of copied sound:

move fast
times slow
why won't
you hold
am i important
you're sure important
to me

Modest from the recognition, trying to figure out the appropriate response to

smiling; hello

Alternatives:

If I smile and nod, he could stop and pause, probably turn around, want to know my name.

If I smile and nod, he could move along, probably just courtesies, never know his name.  

Tired of all the repetitive noise:

Move slow
Times fast
Why won't
You last
Am I important
Are you Important
To me

Questioning the result that be encountered from the:

Hello; Smiling

How should I perceive so actions could follow through;

Do I want her presence, I don't know why I looked, a smile she had it booked. It took me a moment, that I just had to stare, the hopes I'm not sure I'll declare.

Is it just my intuition, is there something that I'm missing. My walking's starting to ease in speed, I'll lose what could be found, what might I need.

Staring at an ordinary sidewalk that grew me exhausted from how normal it was. I paced a listless pace, in total daze of the abundance of copied sound:

move fast
times slow
why won't
you bold
i'm important
you're sure important
to me

Something about recognition, modesty and prohibitions; ruin a perception twice. Two people could of broke the ice. Maybe to afraid to fumble, but even misheard words spell mumble; A salutation or full discussion, two hands could've been touching

Shake
hold
Play
touch
Feel
same
way

Each other

Grab
cup
Pull
caress
massage
All
day

Like lovers

Hello

Smiling
