You don’t look at me the same way as I do look at you
I’m waiting for you as you pass by but you don’t have a clue
I always try to approach, say hi and introduce myself
But you’re always nonchalant, ignoring my cry for help

You don’t know that my world revolves around you
I tried to get near but I orbit in circles, I can’t reach you
You’re the sun and I’m the farthest planet seeking for your light
You’re zillions miles away and I’m losing my fight

I found a glimpse of hope, figured a plan to get through you
So today, I screamed your name and proclaimed “I love you”
I gave you my stars and moon to conquer the impossible
In spite all these, to you I am and will always be… invisible

Author’s Note: This is part 3 and probably the final part. Perhaps I should continue the story but let’s see if I’ll find some time and inspiration to do so. Here’s part 1 and part 2.

Where no one bothers, I’m at my best at night
It’s when I let go and have a taste of life
It’s the anticipation, hoping for a chance
It’s the dreaming, it’s staring at you from afar

It’s the wait, the excitement to see you in sight
When you’re here at last, it’s that rush to get me high
When you’re nonchalant, unmindful and carefree
To watch your every move, that’s my liberty

Imagine my surprise when I saw you at lunch
I was exposed, my invisibility’s gone
Confused, not sure I’d like us to meet right now
As I’m contented to lurk in shadows for now

Lurk In Shadows (Part 2)

Author’s Note: Here’s Lurk In Shadows (Part 1).

Quietly minding and eating my lunch
Then a Goddess of Beauty appears! You!
You sit beside me, place your tray then smile
Forced myself to smile lamely back at you

This is the moment, my one and only chance
Building my courage to speak and say hi
I open my mouth but no words come out
Can’t move! I feel my heart is about to blast

Where’s Harry Potter’s cloak when I need one?
Damn! I was caught off guard in broad daylight
Now you’re leaving without even saying bye
Got no choice but to lurk in shadows tonight
