“Never for Him”

 

He was just

lonely

willing to do

most anything

just to be

liked

he began to

wonder

if he was

broken

some of his

more important

parts

missing

from some

personality

rebuild

he can’t remember

going through,

he didn’t

understand

that being

overly

friendly

was seen as

a weakness

too needy

of a person

to be taken

seriously,

nobody wants

what is being

thrown at them

looking more

like

the monkey at

the zoo

hurtling

its shit

at anyone who

comes close to

him,

he was tired

of spending

his days

trying to work

his way up

from acquaintance

to part-time

friend

standing around

hoping she’ll

take a look

his way

before deciding

that she’ll never

have a spot

for him

any where

in her private

game,

why is it

so hard

to find a

starting point

an accidental

meeting

that turns into

a number and

a name

or that girl

you’ve known

for a while

who suddenly

sees you as

more than just

a familiar

face

someone now

who she thinks

she just might

like to get

to know

better,

but for him

casual chance

is just a

myth

nothing ever

just happens

for him

romantic

encounters

like that

don’t really

exist

in his world

so he rarely

takes a shot

at love

or even

friendship

with the odds

stacked

in the way

that they

are,

and when

he

is able to

convince himself

she might like

him

even a little

he buries her

in attention

the immense

weight

of his affection

crushing down

on her chest

till she can’t

breathe

the last little

gasp

of possibility

squeezed out

of her

the relationship

dead

before it has

ever begun,

why can’t his

life

have just a

few

normal pages

in it

where everything

goes according

to script

instead of having

to live under

a broken sun

in a broken

sky

waiting for

that

one chance

that never

seems to

come

his way…
