"The New Boy"

Poetry By: Catching Frogs

This is a poem about the first guy I actually 'like like'. It doesn't rhyme, just to say.

i saw you around the school
thinking "oh, it's The New Boy"
i saw you once or twice at music group
but we really first talked at the play
i really tried to talk to you,
you were pretty shy
but you did let me say some words
and soon we talked every day
we walked home from school together
while butterflies flew around my tummy
but one day someone said you were leaving
but hadn't you just got here?
i went and told my friend the news
she said "tell him or you'll regret it"
so for a while i tried to build
the confidience to say
the only words that caught in my throat
which is weird for what my hobbie is
then one day i finally said
the words i've always wanted to say
but then you told me just like that
that you had a girlfriend already
through all the times we walked home
there was one thing you forogt to mention
that there was a girl back home
that got there just before me
we managed to go on like nothing had happened
but everyone would always remind me
that someone was very lucky
to have The New Boy
