“Hello” you say as you walk by,
And flash that quirky smile.
You squeeze your arms around me,
“Geeze, it’s been a while!”

Yeah, my summer was fun,
And yes, I missed you too.
No, I’m not excited to be back.
Yes, I am glad to see you!

You say your goodbye and turn around,
As you head off down the way.
I stare down the hall until you are gone,
Although I still have so much to say.

“Hey!” you say coming towards me,
It’s been a month since I’ve seen you last.
You give me a pat on the back
“Man, a lot of time has passed!”

Yes, I like my schedule.
Yeah, my grades are “A’s”.
Of course I want a class with you!
And yep, I do miss those days.

You smile and say “Catch ya later”
As you walk away from me.
I look your way until you disappear,
And I wish you could only see!

“Sup?” you say as you approach me,
And playfully shove me away.
“I can’t believe it’s been so long,
since I saw you last that day!”

No, I hate the drama,
And yes, I made the team.
Yeah, I took that class again,
And I bet it was only a dram.

?
You mutter “Well I better go”
And again you leave me here.
I guess you do not realize
That you leave me nothing but fear.

You say not a word as you pass by,
And when I see why, I understand.
I guess it’s hard to notice me,
When you’re holding another girls’ hand.

I sink down to my locker,
I cover my head and I cry.
The saddest thing about it all,
Is that you didn’t even say goodbye!

I wrote this piece to show how people can change in such a short amount of time. I didn't mean for it to become so romantic, but love is always an easy thing to relate to :) Enjoy! Oh and please leave comments :)

I'm fine. I just feel like I'm shattered into hundred of little shards of glass and I'm going to hurt everybody who loves me.

This is amazing! Keep writing!

“There comes a time in our lives when we do things that we don’t understand. We confuse ourselves, we might even logically oppose our impulses and yet we act on them anyway... There are some things that we feel that we absolutely must do. We might know that they are wrong, or pointless, or gravely punishable, and yet we do them anyway. These actions are not born of anger or emotion – we are perfectly sober. It’s rather inexplicable. When the time comes, we can’t stop ourselves and so we cannot blame ourselves.” -Umasi, Truancy

This poem is incredible! I have read your other work and have been blown away at how vivid an image you paint through your words! I look forward to reading more of your future work!
