About a Girl

I met her in a place where friends don’t exist and everything is temporary. When she walked in my eyes lit up and my head dropped down in hopes that no one would notice.
Silence is how I begin every conversation. Body language gives it all away, while my heart beat quickens; racing to keep up with all of the thoughts flowing in and out of me all at once.
