The Renewal

by Ms. Smooth

Sometimes at night, I lay here thinking of you
Just enjoying the thought of you and how
 you entertain this mental space of mine
Drifting miles away not realizing how far I've gone
Soon returning with glazed over eyes and secret sighs
There are those moments when these avid thoughts
 have me feeling stupidly infatuated
Knowing these thoughts aren't being returned
But…still hoping
Anticipating the day when the thought of you
 doesn't excite me
When the sound of you doesn't invite me to do those
 things you can't see when I'm alone laying next to
 my phone wondering…did I just moan?
But really, it’s the sight of you that makes
 me shake and break into cold sweats as I
 smile and stare uncontrollably
Sometimes you catch my stare
When our eyes lock…
You must feel me thinking
Sitting there reciprocating glances and chances
 and the possibilities and the maybes of…us
It’s the signs you give me that make me second-guess
 and suggest that being with you seems best
I blame this on you for being you
The one I wouldn't mind sharing nights and
 bedroom appetites and maybe even a few fights
It’s just been so long since I've felt this strong
 for someone and then…you came along
Making it hard to explain the logic of my affection
So, at night, I lay here thinking of you
Not wondering if you're thinking of me too
Just enjoying the thought of you and the fact
 that it’s been a while since I've felt myself…smile
