why does this always happen to me?
I look across the crowded room
a sea full of people
at the party
to finally lock eyes with a handsome man's longing gaze
who is staring back at me
like he wants me
the look of the purest, most simple desire
a feeling so strong
it could not be contained
and when i see the look in his eyes;
when I meet his gaze,
I think that maybe
he's into me
like I'm into him
to my demise
I see her standing there.
and in that moment, I know that
I don't stand a chance.
