" You mean I'm going to put down my sword and your going to put down your rock, and we're going to kill each other like civilized people."- Wesley from "Princess Bride"

You knock me with your movements and sincere talks.
I skip over pages and barrels when you walk in a room.
My scalp stretches taut from nerves.
I look you in the eye searching for some invisible caress.
And it's there and you're so near but I know it won't happen.

Who'd known that I would still be writing about a one-sided love.
You know, my side of the see saw is tipped over because your love is a light as a feather.
You flow in the breeze as I am bested by the tempest wind.
Your eyes close and dream dreams while my heart stops as I slumber.
I try to see if I can see you and all the while I have been trying to jump in a sea of you.

Because baby,when your around all I Feel and See is blue.
A blue, blue love that is calm
And melancholy
And free of folly
But my fire melts what cools and eventually burns me.

The author's comments:
This is simply about a love that never truly was but was lost anyway. A boy I fell for and didn't have the courage to ask for him until the day before my flight was to leave and he wasn't there. But I knew that it was probably going to go nowhere so I wrote thise to ease the pain a little. I hope you all enjoy!
