Seventh hour
he dances
around my
question, writing trueLOVE
on my legs with a
stolen
purple
Sharpie

He’s smiling
only smiling
so maybe I’ll smile back

and maybe get up
and leave

This is a piece worth it's recognition. In a short moment, you manage to put the point across clearly. Many poets can claim fame for that ability, you know.

it was cool how you wrote about a crush(lack of a better word) without being gushy and you got across how you felt about it without actually writing out the emotion.
(to everyone)-
check out my stuff and comment.
would appreciate the constructive critisim.

I'm sorry, maybe I'm too young to understand the meaning of this poem. Anyone willing to explain it to me?
