All I want is to see him

Take her in his arms

Wrap his fingers gently

Around her hips

And kiss her softly

On the lips.

All I want is my every

Dream and illusion of him

to catch fire and burn

Into a million little

Ashes

So that I may never

Remember that

Feeling again.

The feeling of

Unworthiness and

Heartbreak.

All I want

Is to forget how

His eyes stung mine

Forget how his

Hair shined under the

School’s fluorescent lights

Forget how my

Heart thudded faster than

A hummingbird’s eager wings

Whenever he passed

By with a smirk on his face.

All I want

Is to forget his name

And every little detail of him.

All I want

Is to look at boots and not

Think of him

All I want

Is to listen to a song and not

Remember him

All I want

Is to leave that boy-crazy

Middle schooler behind

And forget that

Rejection exists.

That’s all I want.

Is that too much to ask?
