After switching so many songs, I found the one that reminded me of that special person. I looked down and stared at my watch...
saw second by second go by…
the first hello, the first kiss, the first grab, the first tear we shed together,
and at last-
the heartbreak;
I  then realized that only a minute had passed by.
A whole year of wonderful unforgettable moments
in the tick of the clock.
As silence took over the conversation,
I gazed out into the moonlit night,
not worrying about my surroundings.
Thinking of not only the future
but the present as well,
and as I gazed at the trees
that danced to the rhythm of the wind;
I felt calm.
Although I was ignoring all my surroundings
and being pleased by the company of my almost lover,
I thought to myself if my almost lover
becomes my lover, will she remain my lover?
I felt hopeless but full of hope.
I didn't know what to do;
I want her, and she wants me, what is stopping me?
Am I worried about the catastrophes that will occur in the future?
Hurt at the catastrophes that happened in the past?
What was it?
In my mind I wanted to be peaceful as I am now-not for the moment; for life.
I was afraid to be afraid.
When I look at her, when I see her eyes,

then I walk away,

I cry. 

The author's comments:

I was being a poet without even realizing it. I was sitting in class when memories of this one special person came to my mind, and I just wrote. I have always written, but I never knew if there was any way to publish any of my writings until I was introduced to Teen Ink and I thought that it would be a great way to express my writing. Writing has always been a way to find peace within me and as a teenager in highschool I knew there waas no better thing to write about; other than love/relationship. I hope that my poem helps people who are undesesive about relationsips to stay strong and think about all the outcomes nessesary; and to be prepared for anything-evetything.
