Summer Love...?

September 24, 2009
By Anonymous

It’s the same story as others. He’s rich, I’m poor. We’re not to be seen together. Not so easy as that really. I’m just there, always watching him, always staring. I wish I was the girl that was wrapped in his arms. But, I’m not and I know that I can never be. Everyone can wish, can daydream, can stay awake and hope, right? So that’s what I do. That’s all I can do. I see him staring at me sometimes. He knows that I’m watching. I see him look for me. Maybe one day he’ll find me and he’ll pull me into his arms. Maybe, maybe not…

I lay awake in the middle of the night, thinking…No, more like dreaming of what it would be like. Staring into the darkness, his eyes haunting me. Are they blue? Green? Hazel? Brown? I don’t know, but what I do know is that they are beautiful. They are kind, gentle, and full of unknowing love.
I feel the heat of the summer night. Beads of sweat run down my face mixing with my tears. I feel a bead trickle and tickle down my back. That bead pulls me out of my reverie and I try to bring it back. A cool feeling takes over my body and I imagine he is lying next to me, holding me.
Does he love me? Does he really even know that I exist? Does he know that I feel for him by just looking into his eyes? But these questions don’t matter. What really matters is do I love him? I look deep within my soul and search for the answer. What does that little voice say? It doesn’t whisper yes, instead it screams “YES!!!”
Yes, I do love him, or else why would I lay awake at night thinking about his eyes? Why do his eyes haunt me? His face? His beautiful lips that I long to touch with my fingers? With my own lips? Why would these things haunt me? Could it merely be lust? NO! It’s not! It is deeper than that. I long for him to hold me, so that I can feel secure in his arms. But I know that this cannot be. It is forbidden, but even so, I long for this forbidden love… I fall into a fitful, sweaty, sticky hot sleep. It’s all I have to get away from his haunting eyes and his beautiful godlike face.

I was inspired to write this. It's an edited version of the original that I wrote one night.I added alot of stuff, so this is like the extended more detailed version... I actually wrote this about a guy that I really reall really really liked. We couldn't be together because of some rules and because of our...values. But, good thing is I got over him and he never really knew that I existed. yeah, It really sucked when I looked at him and he'd just smile back. Hurt really bad when he left too...

I used to think the exact same thing until it happened to me.

This is so perfect!!! It has just the right touch of drama, detail, and bittersweet honesty. I really liked the part about him looking for you and possibly loving you back.. so relatable. : )

One of the hardest things you'll ever have to do is to stop loving someone because they've stopped loving you.

I think everyone has had something like this happen before, but you brought a new light to it, good job!

Hahaha! Isn't everything that happens during teenage years, dramatic? Everything seems like it's the end of the world! Hahaha!

This is flawless. It shows how your feeling in a deep, compelling way and are just longing to be with the one you love. You, my friend, have an astonishing way with words!

If you love something, srt it free. If they come back, it was meant to be. If they dont, they were never yours in the first place.

This is just amazing! I know how hard it is to love and not be loved back! It breaks you and you have to pick up the pieces every day! Wonderful work!
