Just Me

I never hold her eyes long enough Shyness over comes me I looked away and she slips away into the crowd Another missed chance at a great love Am to polite to do cat call Rather I find it quite rude and inappropriate Refusing to degrade her to a whistle, hey, YO MAMMA! But I do find her to be incredibly alluring Something my silent never betray No liquid courage for me Self courage often fails me I hold our conversation in my head Till fantasy overshadowed Puff goes the reality of you and me As time creates a distance that can't be breach Am too vanilla for the like of online dating I have no witty pick-up lines Tinder is filled with hi, hello and mundane conversations Urges on check My wildest thought left dormant in the corner of my mind Just can't seem to let go, relax, loosen up Rather I patiently wait to be set free Too afraid to cause offence I live well within the margins Nowhere close to the edge No risk, no fun, Just Me
