Childofthemind Poem Story

I would like to write a poem of back and forth POVs. Basically I begin it, a poem about the girl starting the day, eating breakfast and the thoughts she has (eg dreams she remembered, driving to school) and then you say the boys POV (same thing but the boys day) and then the go back and forth. If she looks at him at lunch and he looks back and they look away, she says something about the boy looking at her and then he says something about he looked back and he saw her. It starts rhyming and getting choppier when they think of each other or see each other.

Darkness I see from the back of my eyelids,
Am I asleep or am I awake?
Take a moment to process, do I hear noises or sounds,
Are my memories contained or is my slate blank?.
Decipher the moment and force myself up,
Accept the harshness today will bathe me in,
One bit of cardboard, swallow with juice,
Conversations in the car set me up for sin.
Still groggy from the hours of lying in bed,
When I though about everything but you stuck in my head,
Have to write, have to read, have to unlock and re-lock,
Can't spend so much time wondering about nothing,
Have to yawn, have to carry, have to avoid those like you,
Can't think about the end when the day's just starting to begin.

I wake to the annoying alarm that is my brother
I roll over and pretend I'm still asleep.
He jumps on me and I push him off roughly 
I take a shower and eat the usual cornflakes 
I grab the keys and yell at my brother to get going
He hurries to the car and I drop him off.
I drive sleepily to school, thinking
thinking about what the day with bring
wondering if I will see you
wondering what you will be wearing
Hoping that you will talk to me 
or even just notice me
Hoping you won't crush my heart
like so many have before
waiting for what the day will bring
