Too Late

I saw him everyday outside

the quiet boy, always writing

He amazed me though we never spoke

His worn-in converse and messy hair

I see him glance at me but quickly turn away.

He was a mystery. His eyes burn with wonder.

All I wanted was him to talk to me,

to smile at me with all his love

and to script his name on my heart.

So we will have a bond forever.

He died yesterday. I never got to say “I love you”

 

I saw her everyday outside

the beautiful girl, twirling her hair around her finder.

She amazed me, even though I never got the nerve to talk to her.

Her beat up converse and battered novels

I see her glance at me and smile faintly.

She was a mystery. Her eyes burn with wonder.

All I wanted was to love her

to show her all my love,

and to write my confession on her heart,

so we could love forever.

She died yesterday. I never had the chance to tell her how I feel.

Thanks a lot.

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
