    You sat in front of me, looking down at your phone, typing a
    message.


    You looked like you were about to go, maybe, on a date.


    The first thing that caught my eyes, was the tattoo on your arm.
    It had a special shape, with a structure and form I had never
    seen. The neat pattern suited the color of your skin.


    Then, there was a thing that looked like a whip--a soft whip,
    lying in your trousers’ pocket.


    No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't see your face clearly.


    I can’t describe the appearance of your face.


    I looked at your expression when you were sending the message;


    I looked at your mouth; I could see a smile pretending to be a
    grin in the corner of your lips.


    You tried to control it.


    I tried to read your mind.


    Your skin was pale but not delicate. A black color shirt, pans
    and red shoes, how suitable for you.


    I could smell your hair, it had a smell from the sea.


    I was charmed by you.


    I kept looking at you, hoping that you would suddenly feel my
    gaze.


    Then I took a photo... for you.

    You stood behind me.

     

    I could feel your warmth. You dressed just like last time.

     

    I recognized you at first sight. You made my heart race.

     

    I wanted to call out to you. But I could not.

     

    I wanted to call your name.

     

    I searched around in my brain, in an ocean of words, in every dictionary-- Every body, every thing, even a kind of feeling, or a movement all have a name, but I can’t, I can't find a word to call you, to make you look at me.
