Midnight Crush

It's like magic

when you're near me.

The world suddenly

becomes still.

I feel a peace

that's never come.

.

Though you don't know it,

and never can,

all I ever wanted

was just

to dance.

.

That pause button

I can never reach,

when life

only spins faster and faster,

just the mention of your name

brings me relief.

.

Though you don't know it,

and I could never tell,

yours is the smile

that makes my heart

skip.

.

Your fingers find

a soothing melody.

Today you played

just for me.

I can't tell…

Oh, how I wish it could be.

.

Though you don't know it,

and probably never will,

your everlasting chivalry

weakens my knees

every time.

.

Most of the time

you're with your friends-

me? I've only got one,

and sometimes she just can't be there-

so you don't see me…

no one ever does.

.

Though you don't know it,

and I would never let on,

I'm the sappy, hopeless romantic,

and you,

you're just…you.

.

I relish the moments

when you come to me.

We talk, you listen.

I love that you're serious when needbe,

but when you're laid back, and goofy,

I like that too.

.

Though you don't know it,

and never may,

your rare sensitivity

shines vibrant colors

into my day.

.

I have no experience

with this kind of thing,

so hear me this once

as, in my own little way,

I attempt to show you

my ever silent joy and ache:

.

Though you don't know this,

and I won't ever tell,

all I ever wanted

was just

for you to ask.
