Finally the day came
When my hormones were at peak.
That day when my heart was to seek
For love in him.
That day it was
When my mind, resolute and brave
Decided to speak what hid in my heart.
Yes it was that day
When I revealed to him
How his name alone
Sent butterflies to my stomach.
How his looks
Sent chills down my spine.
And how his smile
Busted the stress of my life.
I was nervous, extremely jumpy.
Unable to think what to say to him.
No words, I thought could do
Justice to what I felt for him.
Therefore, the poems I penned down
For him, became the pathway for me.
I know not how to express my love
But my writings were enough to give
Some idea of my love to him.
He read all those sitting next to me
Some lines shook him
The others surprised him.
His expressions were that of disbelief,
His eyes full of incredulity.
He asked me if he deserved my love
I would’ve punched him
For disrespecting himself
And finding himself worthless of me.
I told him all this is true
That I fell for him
The day we encountered each other.
He was astonished, amazed, stunned
All at once, that it made me laugh.
He looked so cute, so nervous
And oh so beautiful.
I could have kissed his pink lips
And withered away his bafflement.
But I held myself back and
Let him digest what just happened there.
He sat there, startled, stressed,
Though proud too, but saddened
As I watched him staring at the grass.
All of a sudden he said,
We were never meant to be,
And though he wants me
He wasn’t good enough for me.
I stayed quiet, processing his words,
Tardily sensing the damage
That my heart now began to undergo.
