I sigh on the car window,

Fogging it up with my breath.

I clean it off with my shirt sleeve and gasp.

I see you, getting out of the car.

You're wearing bright colors,

That's not normal for you.

I smile and reach my hand out to touch your face,

But that fails and my fingers hit the window.

I feel my happiness fade a little.

I thought I could just feel you against my skin.

My warmth wrapping around yours, making it one.

I look around to my family members,

With the questioning look, asking:

"Did you see him? Did you see my penguin?"

I hit my forehead on the glass and try to make it look like and accident.

I watch you disappear from my sights

And feel the hurt rip it's way back into my soul.

I turn around and face the front.

I try to find the good things about the stop sign,

I try to make it seem handsome and unique,

But it's just like the two stop signs down the street.

I stick my tongue out at it and sigh.

That's when i felt it.

I clutched my chest and looked at the stop sign.

It can't be?

No, was it...?

Oh, god!

I miss you!

I blush, a slight bit, and look out of the window again,

Breaking my back trying to see you again,

But you're already gone...

And for that moment,

I felt okay.
