When the moment comes

When That Moment Comes
It was my early years at high school 
I wasn't a fool but I wasn't cool

I was fourteen awkward and shy

The girls always said I was a nice guy
Socks pulled up and shoes too big
I wasn't a boy any girl would dig
That all changed when I met her
I'd never been so sure 
She was well dressed with skin so fair
Diamond eyes and butterscotch hair
She was a popular girl amongst all the guys 
My heart skipped a beat when she passed an said "Hi"
Only the cool guys ever got to take her out
I could only dream how that must of felt 
She had a hint of class and a touch of  grace
A devilish temper and an angel face
It was like admiring a rose 
Never able to smell it with your nose
The way the sun would shimmer and dance in her hair
Like a priceless painting handling it with upmost care
She was the kinda girl you just don't ever forget
Like witnessing a beautiful sunset
I was just grateful she was in my class
It took me by surprise when she made a pass
In study time at tables we'd sit at opposite ends
Poking faces and becoming more than friends
She'd wait for me after the bell rang 
To walk to the next class or just hang
She'd ask questions about my family
My best friends and of cause me
Days passed like molasses and days turned into weeks 
Hysterically laughing at my jokes she was barely able to speak 
She was falling over my silly charm
As I dreamt holding her in my arms
I longed for her to officially ask me out 
Then like in a dream I could feel the moment come about
It was written like an old love story
The princess and the pauper tangled in glory
I dreamt of us being high school lovers 
Where our love had finally found one another
She took me aside that afternoon walking between class
My heart racing and palms sweating as she asked
The words I knew once spoken would change it all
Looking right into my eyes I felt my guard fall
She softly spoke the words ,waiting for me to comprehend 
Her words were " I wanna ask out your best friend"
I know she must of seen me stutter and stumble
I told her "that's great!!"  In defeat I stayed humble 
She had been grooming me for information
About her infatuation 
I watched them everyday fall in love together
Laying tangled in each other talking of forever
I never begrudged her as that's the way it goes in life
It wouldn't have changed the amount of stabs in my back from her knife 
In life we all have moments like that we can recall
Someone betrays our trust and sets us up for a fall
In hindsight she taught me a thing or two
To look at life from a different view
Rejection became just a word
To let it ruin me was absurd 
I was bigger and better than that
I won't be somebody's door mat
So I took it upon myself to hurt no more
To always guard and protect my inner core
I became too hot to handle and too cold to hold
To endeavour to be adventurous and bold
To become a tower of power
Too sweet to be sour
To intertwine myself with riddles and jokes
Using laughter to stand apart from all the other blokes
They say everything happens for a reason like its all a plan
The truth is we are all just surviving our lessons best we can

    Well done, indeed. It seems you have a masterpiece as well, my friend! (wish I had “diamond eyes and butterscotch hair”… all I’ve got are glasses and hair the color of dirt.)

    December 16, 2015
    1. wonderwall79

      Well why thank you very kindly
      Well glasses are rather distinctive and I think can be better than diamond eyes and I think glasses add a hint of intelligence
      Dirt hair and butterscotch are very awesome too

    Well wonderwall, I think if this isn’t one of the best torch poems of young love. Then it certainly should be.
    In my case it was a whole different matter. I was glad to… shall we say be a warm up batter for my so called buddies. ‘Wink’

        couldn’t have said it better myself.Add a reply…
        But I have had my share of those I wish had stayed.
        Leavin’ me hurt and bitter knowin’ I’ve been played.
        The best one didn’t go on to another.
        Taws the Grim Reaper who took her.
        Que sera sera.
