Acquaintance

I wonder
if you can see right through me
can you tell I’m trying to draw you out?
let me care for you
and perhaps I’ll earn
a place in your heart

my mother says I pick up people like projects
but that’s not fair to the attraction I feel
like pulling to like
not for romance
but for affection nonetheless

it’s a delicate dance that plays your heartstrings
neither hasty nor subtle
surrender to the music
and let a friendship be born
