teenager in love

The absentmindedness that
has suddenly taken over
the straight blank gaze
forgetfulness and
a lost and forlorn stance
causes Maama to worry, but
even more, the contradiction
a bright and beaming face
the sudden generosity
a song that never leaves my lips
should I tell it’s you
that pushed the ‘panic button’?
I don’t know who I am!
