Turning Green.


Keith was carefree,

He always had new experiences to share

With bright eyes, he told me his crazy stories

I listened carefully, enjoying the lull and inflection of his soft voice


He always had new experiences to share,

His lips curled slightly to the left as he told another dumb story

I listened carefully, enjoying the lull and inflection of his soft voice

Deep brown eyes radiated with passion


His lips curled slightly to the left as he told another dumb story,

About a girl he’d been talking to recently

Deep brown eyes radiated with passion

Slowly, I stopped listening to his stories


About a girl he’d been talking to recently

That’s all our conversations ever consisted of

Slowly, I stopped listening to his stories

He hadn't noticed me


That's all our conversations ever consisted of

I became a victim of unrequited love

He hadn't noticed me

Keith was carefree.

This piece is about unrequited love, where one falls for a friend but the feelings

aren't reciprocated.
