-Shivya Nath

We're sitting on a bus;

together, side-by-side.

Everything seems calm and quiet.


I peek at you

by the corner of my eye,

our gazes lock, leaving both of us shy.


My breathing is shallow,

My head feels too light.

The butterflies in my stomach

have all taken flight.

A sudden weight on my shoulder,

which gave me a fright

I give out a gasp,

I turn to the right,

I see his dusky face,

in the glow of the night.

Soo peacefully asleep;

it was quite a sight.


I smiled,

everything seemed to slow down.

I didn't even notice we'd entered the town.


I shifted a little,

so he could get snug.

I hope what I did wasn't way too much.


I closed my eyes

and kept my head straight.

Our sitting together must be our fate.


On his head,

drooped slowly mine

everything in this world seemed to get fine.


When I finally woke

he gave me a peep,

"I hope that you got a good sleep."


I picked myself up,

from the side of his chest:

a little embarassed but feeling my best.


"Thank you",

we said at the same time.

The feeling in both of our hearts was sublime.


I don't know why,

but we started laughing.

It felt like for hours we'd been chaffing.


I look at his face,

as I calm down my core.

We both are bestfriends,

can WE be something more?

There's someone I want to get closer to...

THIS, but my friends, is my Imagination. Something I wonder about, how would I feel there? The expressions are those that I feel when we talk in class, or work together or even see each other. I couldn't help but put this daydream into words...

Now, I'm feeling creeped out...
