You get ideas from daydreaming. You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time. The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we're doing it. ~Neil Gaiman


I met him in the school parking lot
I thought his eyes were dreamy
He made me laugh more than I had in years

We hung out every day after school
Usually in a small café
And talked about things that didn't mean anything

Finally one day he told me he loved me
And I said it back
Then he touched my hand with a strange look in his eyes

I said no but he kept trying
Every day he kept asking
Saying all these magical things that I loved to hear

And finally I said yes
I had had never seen him look so happy
And I was happy too

Afterward I felt so strange
I didn't like what I was seeing
Everything was so messed up

The sheets were matted
The pillows flat
The lights completely off

And when I didn't feel so good
When I needed him the most
He had gone

I didn't see him for awhile
I thought maybe he was sick
So I called his house everyday

Then during break I saw him there
He was with another
And had his arm around her waist

I had never felt pain like this
To know that he moved on
And left me in the dust to feel alone and unwanted

I felt strange again that following week
And wasn't sure what to do
So I went to the store just to check

It came back positive
I wanted to cry
I wanted to scream
But none of that would get me anywhere

I told him the next day
And you know what he said?
"It's not mine."

So now I live with his baby
That he never met
And I can't help but keep thinking
Did he even care?
