two poems

Awestruck
stubble, a happy medium of rough and smooth,
he grazes my shoulder and that's all I require
no purpose, not really.
fascinating myself with the whole of him.
sitting at my vanity, i know about insanity,
this can't be it.
bare, on the outside
exposed, but deserving
do i dare impress?
will he express?
feelings; ruthless.
I always saw this as inconceivable
but now my serene mind has a specific destiny
at least for now.
authentic words, spoken in fifths
we relish in our glory
practically bursting at the seams,
chivalry is blossoming,
frolicking seems natural.
delicate defines all emotion
anxious excitement fills our pulsating veins
could this be it?
the words written down almost a forbidden power
as we speak in fifths and cursive tongues.
Immediately the warmth is replaced with longing,
my acapella mind without one to complete it.
again, I think of my carousel of colours, my whirlwind of a classic orchestra.
do you?
Wincing at a gaunt expression, I'm sitting there again.
sitting at my vanity, I know about insanity,
this can't be it.

Cobalt Crescents
just a gesture.
it's all I need from you to make this illusion of a fool.
sightseeing in Paris
you are calling my name
I can think of very few things that could reduce my juvenile grin.
we sit at a table,
one and a half feet apart,
there's a connection, is there not?
the crescents in your eyes make it impossible to refuse this oasis of panoramic entertainment.
we eat biscotti,
it's 2:35,
at a small estate of obscene tomorrows.
Hesitation creeps up on me and I suppress the urge,
your effortless attempt with a chromatic fashion works great.
just great.
We secretly yearn for frivolous casualties
as we sit, edging closer.
Our charisma and chemistry ricochets all around
Enchanted, as he tells his tales.
we stand to leave,
this stranger with cobalt eyes,
and I gasp.
"tomorrow," is all he says
and I meditate to those words as I walk away,
to morr ow
tomorrow
to morr ow
tomorrow.
embrace.

Those were two poems that I have written(both in geography class, I may add).
please feel free to leave comments with constructive criticism, or any comments at all about them.
