I step inside and seated.
The first thing I noticed
the place is empty
and I realized
it’s just you and me.
I flipped through the menu pages
of random dishes I never tasted.
I was about to try something else
but I just ordered fried rice instead.
I may look dumb there
because you reach out to me
and said something
instantly I replied “there’s no need”
when I didn’t even hear what you said.
Well, that’s me.
When I look at you
you do look like someone
oh fuck I said to myself
I fall for that face
your black shirt
your black jeans
the way your jeans hangs on your hips
all really fits well
I keep staring at you
praying that you’re staring at me too
but my mind is just playing tricks
and my heart feels like thumping
dumb dumb dumb dumb
And then BAM!
I caught you’re looking
fuck again I said to myself.
then I stand and walk away
still with an untouched fried rice on my plate.
