Word-High July 1st – Kilig


What is it about you

That mention of your name

And I’m a flutter inside?

We met across a crowded room

Two scared souls

Tentative, unsure, fumbling words

Embarrassed we thought each other a fool.

I rejoice in my good fortune

You thrill my every day

But still the butterflies persist.

Is this the crazy thing called love?
