A Diamond In Your Eye

Dear Sir, I saw you watching me from where you sat at your own table, just like me. I’m sure you saw me trying not to stare right back at you! I’ll tell you, honestly I’ve never seen a guy like you before, with eyes of such a brilliant and rare hue. I could not just stay seated any more. I felt compelled to come and talk to you. So now I’m here. Ah, yes! Your eyes are green. I thought they were. . . and yet they far outshine mere emeralds! I think that I have been enraptured since your gaze first fell on mine! I tell you this (though, truly, I am shy) I want to be a diamond in your eye!

Congratulations! The 'shy' part certainly is ME. I have never been aggressive, well, not until ... I could not be as bold as your fictional character so it was an exceptionally fun read. I have wanted to, but had I tried, I would have stuttered and ended up saying, 'ah...dah.' Very good one, Sweetie ... CayCay
