She smiles thinking of the boy who stole her heart
Had her crying one night
Watching him leave, wondering why it hurt so bad
Fools game she said, never wanted to play
Annoyed .frustrated. yet didn’t understand why she kept looking his way
Never did she dare to say bye
Had her head held too high to say one ‘hi’
Sat on the corridor and watched him pass
Mouth sealed. Words locked. Perhaps eyes spoke but pride denied.
Fingers fall short to count now ..the numbers of years that went
summers haunt back and
so does the kisses of withered flowers wishes
‘just one moment, just one moment to be with you..’ her heart says
a long sigh..
‘too late to make it happen’ mind regrets.
Picturing herself on wedding dress, tonight
Watching at the ceiling, she wonders if things would have been alright
Had she confessed to him , so long ago..
when she was barely just a teen, new to wonders of pheromones
‘Don’t mind, couldn’t have afforded a broken heart…’
‘Bad boys only leave you damaged like a trash’
Yet, Forever close right next to her, she wants you
You would never know, would you?
she would cheat, she would steal .. if you ever asked her too
Never had a luck to escape being broken again
Swore she won’t, Yet she bends her fingers to count it all back to start when he left
For ‘That boy’ who she never forgot,
she will be waiting another year, till her silver hair falls and frail arms give away
to catch one glimpse, to take just one retake
to re-live that fleeting seconds of memories..before everything disappears.
