First In Love

I've never had a boyfriend, but I can say that I've felt love before, so here it goes.

Your nerdy laugh & awkward lankiness drew me in with impeccable force.
I sit in class plotting ways to run into you.
All of a sudden, there you are, walking down the hallway with those long legs of yours.
I look down. Too afraid to look into your lovely brown eyes.
I must be brave & with all my strength I casually wave my hand and say "hi".
You say "hi" back & we talk a little bit.
You start telling me about co-signs & tangent lines & how much you love calculus.
I begin to falter in speech because I can't comprehend your smartypants remarks.
But I still listen.
 Because talking about calculus for twenty minutes is better than not talking to you at all.

  2. Haha! This is great!

    Long, lanky-legged boys are the best. Even if they only converse in math.

  3. Goodness, I know how that feels -- to not care about talking about the most boring topic as long as you're talking.
