in chriscrossed
highways of labor,
intersections deliver
most blessed visitations:

hear, see
: blush :
like a school boy -
i choke
i freeze
i stupidize*
when you
: stop :
and speak to me.
and all the things i've learned
from five hundred ninety
thousand leaves
of life / color / theory / letters / symbols
and ancient philosophy
all evaporate
when you look at me.

gaston is old - he's twenty-four!
yet whenever his co-worker chris visits his office, he regresses to an inexperienced, silly boy who freezes when a close encounter with the object of his infatuation takes place.

be forewarned:
this is kinda cheesy ;) (Wink)
sorry... couldn't help it.

Very nice poem, not cheesy at all.
I know how it feels, I've been and I am there. I can think about it...
you have the talent to write about it.

One thing I'm good at is giving advice to other people that I could not possibly follow myself.
Here goes... talk to that person about it. You seem a man of beautiful words.

But I forgot the silly boy takes over =D (Big Grin) . Try.

Later
