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.


The author's comments:
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...

This is really great, very vivid, I could completely understand the girl's thoughts.  Great job!

Btw, will you check out and comment on my work?

this is good but i think the title should be 'forbidden love' instead of 'summer love...?'

thanks for reading! Naw, I got over him. I'm looking at someone else. It's crazy how you can just have these strong emotions over someone. I'm really glad that you like it.

I know how you're feeling... I began to really really like my best guy friend as more than a friend... I don't think he ever knew or liked me that way, and he'll probably never find out. Luckily I do have a love in my life for almost a year now, but the thought of my best guy friend still makes me think, "What if?" Great job capturing emotion in this story! Could you comment on my work please? :)

I totally agree with Chloe. I recently fell in love with my friend. He doesn't know it yet and probably never will. If I tell him he might break my heart....And yes, the harder I fall, the more pieces my heart breaks into..... :( Check out some of my work and post a comment.

I know exactly how you feel. In a way, it is a good thing he never held you. I was in your position once, except the boy took me to prom and he held me through a slow dance. His eyes were brown. After that I fell too hard for him. Later that boy broke my heart. I'm still not sure if I'm over it yet. So trust me when I tell you that you're lucky you didn't get to close. It may not seem like it, but you are. The harder you fall, the more pieces your heart brakes into. </3
