First Glance

poem by: Q. Ramirez
Written on Jan 15, 2016

Romantics call it Love
Cynics call it Lust
To me is but commotions
Of opened flood-gates to the heart
Stirring myriads of emotions    
At first glance jubilant inceptions from the start
As now compelled to deem myself as your admirer
To scrutinize your thoughts, your needs
To such heart-felt feelings of desire
To know your likes, dislikes, your peeves
Oh! See what inspirations you are able to instill
My want to understand what makes you Love or totally despise
As how your image cast a spell upon my will
My need to know for certain if you are real or an angel in disguise

A really lovely poem Althoug after the first glance comes the reality for good or not so good.
