Iridescent/Stop, Look, Listen

Iridescent

I am intimidated but
I am still interested.

I am certain I like you though
I am doubtful that’s how you feel too.

I am flattered by that piercing look yet
I am worried my interpretation is off the hook.

I am missing that peculiar happy sound and
I am missing the radiance in you I found.

I am happy to be an admirer from a distance even when
I am certain that I will be happier if you are with me this instance.


*****


Stop Look Listen

Stop.
Do not over analyze.
Believe in sincerity.
Believe in the possibility.

Look.
Beyond the self-made persona,
beyond the impression,
there’s a gem to be found.

Listen.
Words may not be smooth and slick.
Words may be bland and less blooming,
but they surely come with promises of the Holidays.
