I miss you in the way I can’t really explain


I never could tell if you liked me

you sure had me fooled

but all my heart has left

is that day you first spoke to me

on a cold November morning

in black boots, black tights, and a frilly black skirt

I walked knowing nothing about the world

 

and I hear your voice behind my left ear

and I turned and saw your calming figure

with your long legs

and sport-brands attire

 

you didn’t say hi

instead you compliment my drawings

wishing you were as good as me

and i stared blankly ahead

not believing you said something to me

 

and you kept talking

and i kept following every word

and when I responded you looked at the side profile of my face

you looked at my face so much in that conversation

 

on a cold November morning

in black boots, black tights, and a black frilly skirt

I walked knowing nothing about the world

but a boy in Econ class payed attention to me

when I looked away from earth

when I trudged in my dis-satisfaction

when I created in my notebook

when I took off my jacket

and rolled my eyes

and brushed off the lessons

and watched the morning light’s rays make it to only one part of the room

 

somehow I didn’t notice the stares

or the thoughts

or emotions

 

until the day we first spoke

where he acknowledged the drama book

I brung to class one day

and in that moment I felt

someone was noticing me

in my own chaos

and I couldn’t have been more blind

 

After that day

class became exciting

and I woke up eager to attend

and my heart full of life

when it saw you at our table

 

just a boy and a girl together in one row

always talking to each other now

 

And the second time you walked me to my class

I thanked you for doing so, and that it wasn’t necessary for you to though

but you said it was no problem

and smiled saying you liked talking to me

 

and I turned away

my heart and eyes full of surprise

and nestling on stars

 

And now it’s been three months since we’ve been talking

but last week I ran away

 

And now on a bitter cold november morning

in black boots, black tights, and a black frilly skirt,

I walked knowing nothing on how I lost you

 

I miss you
