The story behind her smile

by emmerz   Nov 7, 2006

She took a chance and made a move
No inhibitions holding her back
Just to see what he would do,
She asked him for a chat

At first he looked a little puzzled
But he finally said 'I guess'
He never knew that that afternoon
Would lay his secret to rest

She lead him to a quiet spot
Upon the fresh green grass
she looked him in the eye
And got up the nerve to ask

But then the hard reality set in
And she fidgeted for a bit
She looked cautiously up to the sky
And shyly bit her lip

As she stumbled on words she wanted to say
She felt a warm hand touch her arm
It was the boy she wanted so desperately
Even if he caused her harm

She noticed something kind of funny-
He was acting sort of strange
She asked him what was wrong, he said,
"I'm having trouble with this change."

She was puzzled beyond belief
But she asked him anyway
"What change is this you seem to be
Struggling with today?"

"There's a girl who I've grown closer to
And I think the love is true."
And as her shoulders sagged with loss and despair,
He said "that girl is you"...

    I really like the story behind this one.. it's very sweet. The only problem I saw with this was the third line of the last stanza. It's much longer than the rest of the lines and reads kind of awkward, I think that it would work much better if you took off "and disappointment." that way, the flow would be much better and you'd still get your point across to the reader. Other than that, the flow was really good and held up well. Great job on this! 5/5 Keep it up!

    This poem is very cute, but I kind of saw the ending come. However, word choice, flow, and imagery OWN in this poem. I bestow you a 5/5.
