CORNER OF YOUR EYE

The other night when you left the room
And you were gone for quite some time
When you returned your hair was parted in a slightly different way
Was it just me? No, I'm not blind

And other times when you walk about the room
I catch the whiteness of your eye
And though we've spoken scarcely more than a few words
I've burning questions on my mind

And I wonder...

Do you see me seeing you seeing me from the corner of your eye?
We may hide our faces, but never break from curiosity
I'm terrified & nervous, piqued & stimulated just to get to know you
My peripheral love, peripheral love

When you're around I feel the air rise thru my toes
I catch a fever, breaking highs
And when I try to speak my words come out a choke
I do not know the reasons why

But when you move away, my gaze is drawn to you
All company becomes a blur
The shuffle in your step, the funny things you do
I can't resist, much less ignore

And I ask myself...

Do you see me seeing you seeing me from the corner of your eye?
We may hide our faces, but never break from curiosity
I'm terrified & nervous, piqued & stimulated just to get to know you
My peripheral love, peripheral love

Do you see my seeing you seeing me seeing you...

Jamal Traub Chattanooga, Tennessee

I was just a boy
Grew up in the grass
Biking down a dirt road
Falling from a tree
& scraping my knee

It's all coming back to me now
