This is for the girl that always made him wonder
Here are the words he didn’t say
Or he just never found the optimal moment to articulate how tangled up he felt
He was caught up in the anticipation of defeat
To him you were a mystery that just wasn’t meant to be solved
And he wanted to love you more than he knew how
He was reaching for the impossible
Like trying to go straight when you only row on one side
And what would seem to be a back track is that you both are previously attached
But he still craved your presence
Soaked in your very essence
And didn’t take his time falling for you
That ability escaped him when he started listening to your eyes
To the girl he could have loved
You are the daydream that never quite gets old
Your smile is positively unforgettable
He keeps trying to figure out
How could something that never happened
Feel so perfect
How could your body say so much–
When he’s never even felt your head lay on his chest
Or wrapped his hands around the small of your back
Was that one awkward second too long,
but He was sure
in the next lifetime,
They would both hold on forever
And to that girl
Who still doesn’t know the effect she had
That girl who managed to remain oblivious
You are the homecoming queen of his heart
And the reason he finally downloaded that song
You managed to hide your feelings
Even though your laugh secreted signals of seduction
And whenever you were side by side
Good intentions were not enough
Because to entertain temptation
Would be to succumb to heartbreak
He would already ache
From the sight of your palms belonging to anyone but himself
This is for the boy who kept her smiling;
You are the weight that pulls her stomach down to her knees.
And the reason she listens to jazz when it rains
To the boy who managed to make her fumble her words
Because of you she can’t listen to that song without getting flustered
You stay at a distance just past her horizon.
Still visible, but only if she searches for you.
To the boy who stole a kiss.
And gave it back.
You are truly one of a kind.
She keeps you in her thoughts and still remembers your shy smile.
She only had one question for you.
And you walked away leaving with a silent answer.
This is from the girl who should have loved him back
