First Impressions of You

I saw you beyond the forest,
Jogging your life away…away…
I’m actually trying my hardest
To get through everyday…but hey,
Life is so temporary 
But, you turned the other cheek
Speak to me silently
I am still this dorky geek…so, don’t speak

Listen intently to what I’m about to say today
I’m losing my mind, being somewhat led astray
If life gives you flowers, make a beautiful bouquet 
I need you and want you to stay for a while, okay?

First impressions count in my dictionary
Give me your dazzling delight 
But, you turn away – your actions are Contrary
To what you say to me tonight

I screwed up, 
But I won’t give up

Words whispered in my ears
The two words I longed to hear for years
Te amo – shed your hearts' fear
You will never understand the reason I’m in tears

Trees of tranquility is my remedy
The wind in my face is fairly chilly
Kill me with your crazy state of mind
You left me feeling numb and blind

You resonate in my brain
Te amo – despite the pain
Gracias, amigo,  pero no me arrepiento
I don’t want to take away my pain, I know

The first impressions of you
Made me feel happy out of the blue
But, you don’t know what I’ve been through
You should have already knew - yes, all I say is true

Then, you’re with somebody else
I can only guess – won't second guess myself 

I’ve been lost and bewildered
I have empathy towards being a caged-up bird
I never really flew with the herd, anxiety acted like my  gird
I find living life awfully absurd…how awkward…

Your first impressions were sexy
Until I figured out your intentions frankly

You made out with me and we made love
Now, you’re the crow and I’m the dove
God is looking down at me from high above

Often times, I wonder why I keep musing about you
Sometimes, I wonder what you say about me is true
You're now my least resort and I left you with a much-needed, last impression
My expression is beyond comprehension, not to mention the tension between us…now, that’s an exception 

You rejected me long ago
Still sensitive to the bone
I want the dawn to glow…
I have more light to show 

My radiant reception
Sweeps away my placid, yet ugly past deception

Still liking my free-will future…
There’s a chance we both can endure
My sins are oh so impure
But, I’m hoping that you will be my cure

Goodbye, dear love
Now, I’m going to rove
Te amo, my love
Where's my other glove?
