I couldn’t even say “hi” back.
He had trapped me in his blue eyes.
They paralyzed me and I became stricken.
My lips brushed against his name
as he stood so patiently,
waiting for me to speak.
His face relaxed into a smile,
and he ran his hand through his hair
as if he was as nervous as I was.
He came to stand closer to me,
and he actually said my name.
I didn’t think he even knew my name.
My eyes were still locked onto his.
I didn’t think I had ever seen blue that bright before.
