Courage, If Only I Had Spoken

Dark hair falling acrossed-
eyes the color of a glacier,
bright, icy blue.
His smile-intoxicating
He's everything she's ever wanted
but confliction and the past,
prevent it from blossoming


When he walks by-
she shields her eyes behind a mass of messy black hair
she's so sure he notices
can't help it
the feelings still linger
make her heart stop beating


Every where she seems to see him
the store, in class-
not even lunch is sacred.
She knows now that he isn't worth it
but how can she desert this?
It's like true love
but only broken.
She wants to make amends
have a chance at maybe being friends-
and then he approaches


she's bent over a book
pretending not to sense his gaze
he stops only a few feet away
the air around them trembles
neither knows what to say-
followed by only silence
and then he walks away.
If only she had spoken.
