Beach glasses and hourglass
One of those classic ones
One step I take towards you
Two steps backward

Sun rays blinded you from me
Or me from you
Thoughts clouded my vision
Maybe a skin too nightly

Bloody insecurities mutilating 
This poor soul of mine
As it writhes in hunger
Desperate to be noticed

A poem I wrote
And walked boldly up to you
Fall you did
As my words were read

On my bed I lay
A lovely dream, I sigh
Peering through my window,
I see you walk by.

Joshua, this is such a well written poem captured the angst of trying to say hello to the one we like.
