"A wise girl kisses, but doesn't love; listens, but doesn't believe; and leaves, before she is left"
~~ Marilyn Monroe


Watches from the school hallway,
the girl he loves walks away.
Won't even pass a glance,
will he ever get his chance?
Thinking back to earlier days,
when they were together always.
He didn't think it would ever end,
he can't lose her again.
He'll tell her,
the way he feels about her,
the way he's crazy about her,
the way he wants her in his arms,
the way he'll hold her close,
the way he'll always know,
how special she truly is,
the only girl, he wants to kiss,
but he can't love a girl that's taken.
She walks by never looking his way,
but this time he won't let her get away.
He says she's what he's looking for,
he hopes and dreams they'll be more.
She looked at him with tears in her eyes,
she thought back to earlier times,
when she wanted him as well,
only now it's too late to tell.
He pulled her into his arms,
turning on all possible charms,
he took her breath away,
but she told him she can not stay.
She'll never tell him,
the way she feels about him,
the way she's crazy about him,
the way she wants to be in his arms,
the way she wants him close,
the way she always knows,
how special he thinks she is,
the only girl he wants to kiss,
but she can't love the boy, she's taken.


The author's comments:
This is one of my more lengthy pieces, but it is one of my favorites. It is not as deep as other works of mine, but it has a real story behind it. It is about a girl and boy who are so in love, but she has a different boyfriend, so she can't tell him the way she feels. It's a modern day Romeo and Juliet in a way, and I love that idea.
