An ironic poem by Mariam Bagadion
Stifle your smile when she walks in the room
Bite the lip of your sweater, don’t make eye contact
Her eyes are pools, and you don’t know how to swim.
If you do start to drown, be cautious
Her voice is a naked electrical cord disguised as your lifeline
A jolt to your system, potentially fatal
And when she sings it’s your siren song
Coursing through your veins like a drug
Dragging you deeper, in a dazed ecstasy
Avert your eyes when she lets down her hair
It’s a waterfall
And her lips the hidden enclave you can never reach
She is already your sun
The center of your universe
Don’t fly too close, or you’ll lose your wings
But the heat is alluring
The songs are addicting
The shock is exhilarating
The water is enticing
So how do you get over a straight girl?
Let me know when you figure it out.
