Passionate Stranger constanza

I shall confess my secret aim:
To make you mine is what I plan;
But would you want me as your man?

I wonder how to light your flame;
And if you’ve even noticed me.
Are you alone - or can’t it be?

How can I get to know your name?
I dream about you night and day;
Yet shyness hampers words I’d say.

My heart is true, you’re not a game;
I offer more than just romance;
So please agree to take a chance.

But could you ever feel the same?
I write these lines and long for you;
And hope you’re thinking of me too…


I shall confess my secret aim:
I wonder how to light your flame;
How can I get to know your name?
My heart is true, you’re not a game;
But could you ever feel the same?

For Craig’s Constanza contest, written 18th December

    Jack, Such a great way to present thought we've all felt at one time or another! Kudos!

    How I remember these feelings. I'd see an unforgettable face in the crowd, between the arms and shoulders of the rest and wondered how I might make something happen. Usually it didn't, but I enjoyed reliving the glow. Congratulations.
