You said quietly
While we sat facing each other.
"Today's the day of...
My science final,"
You continued slowly.
If I don't do well,
What will that say
As a student...
Who enjoys the subject?"
I tried to give you
A kind smile
To maybe calm your nerves,
But you didn't smile back
While you played with your fingers,
"You are a better student
Than I am.
That you'll do well.
Better than well."
That got you to look up at me,
But I still needed a smile,
So I added,
"Don't doubt your knowledge,
A little sheepishly,
But it was still a smile.

along empty hallways and white beaches
and to movie theatres and long bus rides
I will keep it in neat fold
until the day I will recite each word
looking in your eyes, at my own reflection.
And you will play your melody
that melody you kept so long
in the pocket of your jeans so old and worn
that melody in that crumpled sheet
you take in trains and old houses and seas and streets.
I will recite each word
and you will play your melody
we will make an anthem of this poem
we will sing a makeshift song
we will sing loud and out of tune
we will sing our hearts for all the days we’ve been apart
we will sing for a story that’s bound to start
we will sing like no one’s listening
we will sing like the dolphins and jays above
and it will be a beautiful song
one that’s made of a melody and a poem
You will play your melody
and we will dance like crazy
we will save a dance for this song
we will twist and jump and wave our hands
we will ru
Alone in the WoodsThe elf was thereAlone in the Woods1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
Alone in the woods
From his long lost love
“Dear, Oh Dear!
Don’t disappear on me now!”
Alone in the woods
Screaming for his
One and only
Mad at her because
He told her not
To go anywhere
Is not right in the head
She has seen many horrors
With the thousand year wars
Her father and her brothers
“Dear, oh dear!
All will be ok
Do believe me.”
The elf grows desperate
He lays on the grass and he
Rest his eyes
He hears a whisper
“It is I, one of
the Great Ones.
I am the guardian of the forest.”
“Oh Great one…
My true love is
Stuck in these
Please, bring her to me…”
The Great one
Sighs and puts
An arm on his shoulder
“Your loved one…
Is with me now.”
Sad but relieved
Went back to sleep.
And never awoke.

I'm right here,
To wash away the sadness,
To wipe away every tear.
Girl, I'd give you the world,
You'd have it all,
I'll hold you high,
And never let you fall.
I do it because I love you,
To Pluto and back,
I'm here to help you through it,
Keep you on track.
Girl, just give me the word,
And I'll give myself to you,
We'll make it through this together,
Together, we'll make it through.
Teenage CrushI know that I'm just another girl,Teenage Crush3 days ago in Free Verse More Like This
captivated by your eyes of blue,
afraid to hear another story of you,
in case I fall even deeper for you.
You pull me to one side to tell me
something you would only tell a friend,
I feel my cheeks are turning red,
I'm tugging at my clothes,
and playing with my hands,
trying to keep my cool and you don't understand.
You move around behind me to explain,
and my heart beats so hard it might break my chest,
I pretend that I heard what you just said
while I was concentrating so hard
on not letting my feelings show.
I am careful not to let my pose
mimic your own as we stand in a group,
Stolen glances, stolen moments,
from your relationship.
You tell me she's the one,
you can't imagine life without her now,
I smile and nod,
searching for the words inside my head.
I don't want you to know me,
because then you will reject me,
I just want your heart to hear
all the words I couldn't say.
Don't stand too close,
don't smile too wide,
My Heart, Your CastleYou are the queen of my castle,My Heart, Your Castle8 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
The keeper of the keys,
The foundation of my happiness,
And the cause of my joy.
My beautiful princess,
My amazing Cinderella.
The glee you bring me each day is astronomical.
Your eyes bring me to a high never seen before.
I will be by your side for eternity.
Let our hearts coalesce as we dance.
Let the moonlight shine down and illuminate our passion.
Let the thunder crack as we embrace under the cold night sky.
My heart is your kingdom.
My angel with green eyes.
My beauteous angel,
My gift from above.
You came to me at my time of greatest need,
And you lifted me off my feet.
You brought me happiness I thought I'd never find again.
You helped me up and kept me going.
I'm stronger than ever, thanks to you.
You made me a better man,
A brave, loyal, affectionate creature.
My heart, your castle, our sky.

I woke up nervous
For the first time
For a final.
I blame you,
But maybe it's a good thing.
I was ready
To try as hard as I could
On our English final.
I figured I wouldn't do as well as you,
But I figured I would try
To get as close as I could.
You were already in the class,
Sitting in my seat and reading,
When I arrived.
I was happy to see you
Calm and relaxed.
I knew you had read every word
Of every book we've had to read,
Even the boring ones,
So of course you shouldn't have been nervous.
I, on the other hand,
And that was only the first.

Near the beginning
Of our final exams,
I could tell you were stressing,
And I wanted to help.
We had been studying,
And I knew you were better off
So on the second to last day
Of our studying,
After a couple hours,
I pulled you away from our textbooks,
And we ate dinner.
It was just the two of us,
But other than that,
It wasn't all that romantic,
Which was okay with me.
We had fun
With school out of the question,
And it was nice
To see you enjoying yourself
And without your notes.
