Awkward Silence

 I see you.

You see me.

Our eyes meet,

But out mouths don't speak.


We stare

At different eyes, face, and hair

Wanting to express feelings we can't bare,

But we both look away scared.


Everyday ours eyes meet

And we still don't speak

Holding in feelings we can't bare

Hoping one day we won't be scared.


Unfortunately, we must face reality

That neither one of us will

Gain enough courage to speak

So we go on speechless

Wondering what we could have been

...Wondering what we could be.


We would have known

If only we'd just speak

Instead of walking pass

Each other every day
