Time Stopped
He placed a simple tape within my hands
Filled with his favorite bands
Not intentionally slipping love songs, I had hoped

A flustered face, and a race
to the car where the tape would be placed
Heart pounding, listening
Listening, listening, yearning, wishing

Wishful that the love was mutual
That maybe we would have a future
Time stopped

The author's comments:
One day, a certain boy gave me a mix tape, not the normal mix CD, but something that took him hours to make and i had hoped it was going to be the beginning of a high school fairy tale
