I sat and stared.
I stood. Transfixed.
As he spoke, his words hit me like electric shocks.
I could see how his enthusiasm made him stumble over words.
His dance-steps depicted his passion.
I wanted this.
I would exchange all the aloofness in the world
For a pint of his zeal.
Anyone observing me would have seen my longing
Alas, I coveted this fervor
That I saw in this electric young man.
