Try poetry or song.
It would not be the first time a suiter springs poetry on his heroine or visa versa, but if well written it will convey more in a stanza then might be offered in a whole scene, because poetry unveils the heart and depth of feeling. At the very least you offer charm. A bit of magic never hurt a manuscript.
Be careful, though when offering recognizable songs subject to copyright. Do it right or offer a legal glimpse at the lyric or song. (homework here, for those interested.)
Here's a poem I'm fond of from my upcoming novel to be released by The Wild Rose Press. It's about a shuttered, neglected black teenager, locked in her room.
