They say the best things in life sneak up on you
They take you by surprise
They come at a time when you aren’t paying attention
And at a time when my guard was down
You caught me unawares, Mr.May.
There was just something about you
That I couldn’t read
And not being able to read you
Was a problem.
I just had to know how I could get a ‘tell’
From someone that didn’t seem to give much away.
I had been trying to master that look
That felt like you could see much more than others.
That smile that could either make you laugh, cry or wonder
I chose to wonder
On how it was possible for a smile to look
So daunting and yet gentle.
That walk; with so much dignity and class
It was crazy yet attractive.
I was Alice being drawn in the hole
I just had to know
As I went deeper and deeper
I found myself wondering
Would it be so bad if he took a second look?
Would it be so bad if I called him mine?
Would it be so bad if Mysterious May looked at me
With eyes filled with love and passion?
And then I wondered
If I would feel the same way if the mystery were solved
Was I only drawn because of the aura of enigma around him?
And then I realised that I was basically – pardon my language- fucked
Because it wasn’t just the mystery…
There was more..
