Smiles and laughter,
a room of pure joy.

Dancing and conversation,
a gathering well done.

Our eyes connect,
but nothing more is done.

Why leave it at that
when we could be so much more.

As I sway I try to not meet your gaze,
but it is harder than it seems,
I can’t help myself.

You talk to your friends,
and I talk to mine,
but our eyes have a gravitational pull,
one that not you, nor I can control.

So why push to let go,
why not give in



  1. A good poem about youthful attraction…well said again.

  2. This is beautiful. I can remember my girls during their times of youthful attractions. I have a question. Do you have titles for your outstanding poems? If not you should go back and put one to them. Titles are very important when writing.

    • Thank you.
      To tell you the truth, I kind of liked the idea of just posting the date as the title of the piece, but I will think about it.

  3. About my suggestion on the title. To use the date for posting on your blog is fine. The suggestion of titles were mainly to have if you decided to publish your poems. You would need a title for your poems if you did that.

    • Yeah, definitely. If the opportunity to publish my poems came up I’d definitely give them a title. Thanks for the suggestion šŸ™‚

  4. very lyrical. šŸ™‚
