I Lied To You

When you looked my way
I didn’t mean to ignore you.
Maybe because I was shy
my eyes could not stare.

If you really want to know
my emotions for you are plenty.
And if you look my way again
I shall show you how much I care.

As you walked passed me I turned
because I was afraid to be rejected.
Your beauty is beyond anything I’ve seen
as I’ve discovered from a distant place.

Maybe if I had been more confident
perhaps I would have stared back.
And my eyes should have not lied
because a stare of love is on my face.

When you spoke in a lovely voice
I was next to you as you stood amongst friends.
Words flowed in rhythmic sounds of melodies
that harmonized my ears from your vocal cords.

I didn’t even whisper an introduction
of who I was to help start a conversation.
Now that I look back at that lost opportunity
my mind doesn’t want to be silent of future words.

Hope you understand my plea to meet you again
when we come across each other at work.
I’m the one that sits behind your desk
and makes no noise with computer keys.

As you receive this message on you computer
be alert and turn around and look my way.
This time I will not ignore you or lie
with my eyes again, so turn, pretty please!
