I walked through the halls,
Emerging into the garden.
Caught off guard I was,
As he sat there and I saw him.
My heart seemed to burst
With joy, but something was different.
This was ever the first
That I felt disdain in such a moment.
She was there, the girl,
The girl he was so close to.
Little does she know what I'd heard.
She hasn't even a clue what I could do.
She may presently belong to someone else,
But that doesn't change what he may have felt or still feels.
"They look like a couple," that's what they'd said.
Well I have to say, it's true, they look real.
I hung my head as I stared,
Wishing he would even take notice.
But no, they went on, they shared.
And he doesn't even know this,
That I long for him inside,
That I wait for him every day.
He leaves, but I run to his side,
Just to hear what he would say.
I treasure his gaze.
I treasure his voice.
He draws me in in so many ways.
He leaves me no choice.
There are no more words to describe.
