walk on by

it was two days in a row
that you smiled at me
and then walked on by

half of me was struck
by your auburn hair
by your hazel eyes
by that amazing smile,
and underneath all of that
you smell so good

the other half of me was struck
by my utter inability to produce
an intelligible phrase
(I’m pretty sure blaphumpdem doesn’t even count as a word)
so as I stood there
watching you walk on by,
my feet are riveted to the floor
and I am saying a quiet thanks
that you walked on by,
and I am uttering a quiet prayer
that tomorrow,
before you walk on by
I’ll be able to say “hi”
