"Imagine a Photo of the most handsome 17 year old boy in the world"
School girl eyes
once pledged life long adoration,
whitewashed him perfect;
forgave sideways glances
toward popular girls -
after all his eyes caressed my shoulder first
as I sat between him and them.
He learned my name come May;
I lived joy all summer -
the way it rolled off his tongue, the way
he leaned towards me. Smiled. The way
I imagined a sexy wink...
Thank God high school ends.
Sometimes, somehow a girl wises up.
The rest isn't poetic;
epic heartache, pillow drenching tears,
the almost purging of him from my brain.
Celebrate to this day
I was never mouse to his cat.
