"No boy is worth crying over, and the one who is won't make you cry."

Why can't you tell?
It's perfectly clear.
Everyone else sees it.
Except you.
Everyone else can see:
The way we talk,
Look at each other
And joke around
And play.
And how I wish I was there,
Every single day.
We laugh so easily,
And get along so great,
And we get each other.
So why can't you tell?
The way we feel is real.
We're best friends.
No fighting.
No ending.
So why can't you tell?
This is true.
The most true thing I've ever experienced.

I wrote this piece when I was a freshman in high school. It's about my boyfriend and I, and how my mom didn't understand how we felt about each other, and how she didn't believe in us like everyone else did.
