    I know your walk.

    A Shy yet confident stride,
    With your left shoulder
    Hunched lower than the other.

    You dip your head low.

    Standing by me,
    Your familiar smile says hi
    We don't even have to talk.

    You laugh.

    One that is all your own,
    Stirring up something
    Much bigger than butterflies.

    You warm my skin.

    Tender touches to my hair,
    My burning cheeks,
    My yearning arms.

    You stand there.

    Towering above my glances,
    Catching my veins
    Offguard and on fire.

    And you can still say,
    I mean nothing to you.

      Wow! I gotta say the ending here isnt what I was expecting and it really must suck to be in this kind of a situation. You obviously love this guy or at least have a huge gigantic crush on this person and for them not to even care about you is really just cold. I guess if I think back to when I was younger (god I sound old now) I can remember someone that I felt this way about but this person didnt even know me. I never introduced myself or anything, I just admired him, and now that I look back on it I should have just approached him. I think we tend to take life too serious sometimes and in the process we miss out on exciting opportunity. The worst that could have happened was he would have looked at me like I had two heads or something but at least I would have taken the chance right? But this poem puzzles me as I am assuming you know this person fairly well and it makes me wonder why you mean nothing? Perhaps you mean nothing more than friendship? Anyway, a very good poem. I like surprise endings! Even if they arent happy ones. Take care.

      This was very well written. I like the detail that you put in the piece. There is good flow. I can definately relate to the piece. I've been on both sides. A few months ago I was reading the newspaper, and came across the Wedding and Engagement Announcements. There was the girl I felt so strongly was perfect for me, but only saw me as a friend. I hadn't seen her in over a year but my heart still sunk. Your piece just reminded me of her, thanks :( lol. I guess I'll have to write about it.
    Sorry for the sob story :)
    Nice write,

      Bloody hell, this is really great, Steph! Very different, describing so nicely the things we take for granted about people, as in their stance, the sound of their laugh, etc. fabulous stuff.

    Yep, I wasn't expecting the ending, rather I would have expected a confession that YOU were kidding yourself that they meant nothing, but the other way around is a real twist...how can they affect you so much if they don't care at all? a good question.

    Fabulous work, I am really impressed with this poem, well done.

    be happy

      this is really sad. but i can totally understand and feel the emotion put into this piece. and that makes it strong if you can convey your message with your writing.

    i agree with the above noter, i love how you fill the reader in about this person. it doesnt just tell you how you still love this person but it SHOWS you WHY and WHAT you still love about this person. it definitely makes the peice more personable.

    ...this is going on my fav. list! :-)

      Girl, the ending threw me off big time. Wow! It seems that you are still in love or something with this person and they still effect you in all the same way. I liked the way you gave the readers insight on this young man, his walk, laugh, the way he touch you and how he made you feel. All great details. It sucks when the guy don't get it, and you are the only one in love. Very nice poem you did a nice job with this one Steph.

      This was well written. Good flow and good combination of both your feelings and describing the scene. It's a pity though he's not into you. It was nice to read,
    thanks for sharing

      I really like this one. At first it seems like two lovers and then at the end it was surprising that he says you mean nothing to him.
    My favorite line was
    "Towering above my glances,
    Catching my veins
    Offguard and on fire"
    It had great imagery with it.
    You can imagine a tall boy standing next to a shorter girl and there is anticipation between them.

      I've felt this, too. Like... how can you be so entwined that you communicate w/o speech but not see how important that connection is. stupid boys.
    It reminds me so much of my best friend in high school who I love to this day. He was tall and beautiful and bitter toward women like you wouldn't believe.

    this is the part that gets me... (I see several other people thought so too) :
    "Towering above my glances,
    Catching my veins
    Offguard and on fire.

    And you can still say,
    I mean nothing to you"

    I like how you tie up the end there. very cool.
    Also I like that you say its something much bigger than butterflies and use the title to tell us exactly what it is he stirs up. again, very cool.

    I wish you the best
