I can't tell if it's the width

of your face

or the slant

of your smile,

but there is something that makes it

so easy to look at you.


I'm not romanticizing,

simply pointing out an observation.

Your face is interesting enough

that it's easy to stare at you.


I don't know what

kind of person you are,

but I trust you.

As a friend,

a leader.


Many people would

say this poem is romantic,

but I, the author,

strongly believe it is not.

Make it whatever you want it

as I have found that

it is not as easy to gaze at the face

of somebody you love.
