A sad love story...the heart break that many can relate to, but is inspirational

The air was fresh and cold, maneuvering its way through my jacket and sweatshirt.

The sky was dark; like ebony, and very empty.

But the crowds of people surrounded me, making me feel more comforted.

Home varsity football team was winning 14-0.

And there I spotted him--smokey blonde hair, his adorable smile, and deep blue eyes.

My heart raced as I watched him;

I watched him push into a social group of girls and boys.

He came upon a thin girl with long brown hair.

He smiled at her.

She smiled back--and they giggled, a nervous, joyful giggle.

My once-happy heart dropped to my feet and my mouth became dry.

The moon shined down over the group, highlighting their existence:

An existence I wish had never existed.

My friend grabbed me by the hand and pulled me away, away from the beautiful boy.

I continued to look back and tried to grab him with my stare and bring him towards me.

But that didn't work--he kept talking to the brown-haired girl.

"I want to go by him," I said.

"Okay," my friend said as she let go of my hand.

My feet were glued to the ground but my mind wanted to go near...

The beautiful boy leaned in towards the brown-haired girl, and kissed her romantically upon her lips.

Tears came, one by one, no matter how hard I tried to stop them.

Love is a gift, given to you by your loved one...

And hopefully someday I would recieve a beautiful box--

And when I would open it, a warm heart would be inside, waiting for me to let it in.

The heart wouldln't be from that beautiful boy...

But someday, when I found him, it would be from my true love.

The air was fresh and cold, maneuvering its way through my jacket and sweatshirt, but not chilling my heart...
