The Boy

That beautiful boy
fills my lonely heart with joy
his smile
his touch
his hair
I can't help but stare
But he doesn't know I'm there
I talk, I scream, I laugh and cry
But he walks far, far away
Oh, why won't he stay?
I dry my tearful eyes and think,
forget it, forget him.
I listen to me.

That beautiful boy sitting there
I refuse to stare
To tell you the truth I really don't care
he stares at me
so longingly
but can't he see?
He's not the boy for me.

I entered this in a peotry competition.

Honestly it is my original work. I would even promise it on a stack of Bibles.

I like the contradiction. It's like you had a crush on the boy so long that when he finally started noticing you you didn'y care anymore. I love it.
